The funny thing w/ Standard Oil is the bigger the got, the cheaper oil (kerosene being the primary product back in the late 1800s, gasoline was a by product) became. In 1870, Standard Oil held 4% of the market and a gallon of Kerosene was 26 cents. Two decades later Kerosene was 7 cents a gallon....and this was after Standard held a 90% market share for 10 years.
