This is possible when there is only one line to stand in.
If it is painful to move to another line, a bunch of people will stay in
If it is effortless to move to another line - or multiple lines - then
people will drift to other lines - and prices will drift to become more
This is the premise of comparison shopping services.
Interesting battle going on.
