“I wish Dollar Tree sold gas”

Dollar stores (such as Dollar General, Dollar Tree and Family Dollar) became popular by selling all (or most) items for just one dollar. Many people wish that these dollar stores would sell gasoline. “I wish the dollar store sold gas” (or “I wish the dollar store would sell gas”) is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images.
