#322: Misleading Price Signs

I don't like the scams businesses do where they put a sign out that tries to trick people. The biggest violators of this are parking garages that advertise some low cost but in small print say it's per 20 minutes, which is not what most people are going to find useful in determining the cost of their parking. Also, I recently noticed a bar put up a sign that said some special beer was $1 off, but the off was small and such that I think they meant to trick people that the price was a $1, not that the savings was $1. Especially since $1 off isn't that great to trumpet. Severity: 2
