Lowe's: Where Fuzzy Math Stings Like A Wasp

How much bug spray does one household need? Wasp stings hurt, so it’s a good idea to stay protected. Even if buying a two-pack costs more than buying two individual cans. You know, safety. And volume pricing. Important things.

Usually examples of “fuzzy math” are off by a few cents. This one really stings because you could almost buy three cans for what Lowe’s is charging for two cans and a bit of shrink wrap.
