As with a fair few things, Joe Biden bears some responsibility for this.

Why? It's a social good.

The railways are the same.

The airline industry is the same.

Gambling products have been regulated into unprofitability.
I agree regarding gas and railways but not on aircraft. The infrastructure permits competing airlines to run flights to the same destinations. I never really understood how gas companies using the same pipes could somehow send you gas at differing prices.

As for gambling - are you sure? I am sure Denise Coates' wouldn't argue that her £468.9 million pay check from Bet365 was being squeezed by regulation.

Did Bet365 have any outlets affected by the regulation of fixed odds betting machines?

Of course not. But gambling is no longer on the high street. Everyone has moved online. Even Sky have got in on the act.

where i'm from gas is the fuel you put in your car's engine and how to heat your home/water is just called 'heating' expense. that's what we're talking about here, right?
