Two navy buddies who fought in the South Pacific together open a petrol station, and a short time later a larger company situates a station across the street. A price war ensues as the partners discover they can siphon gas from a major conduit underground. They find it difficult to stop siphoning once the price war has ended, and perhaps unwisely, even go into the supply business.
