The Double Cheeseburger Conundrum

A customer can walk into a McDonalds and purchase a double cheeseburger for $0.99, while a regular cheeseburger costs $1.05. This incongruity in pricing has always attracted my attention, and I have often wondered why any rational customer would ever purchase a regular cheeseburger. If anyone has any thoughts regarding this question, I would love to hear them.

I suspect this is because McDonalds likes nothing more than to give the illusion of quality, and to create a nation of obese grease-addicted hamburglers incapable of denying their powerful impulses to supersize their fries, burgers, and themselves.
