Michael,
  Resources are not allocated based on the fraction of total available
resources they represent.  They are allocated based on need.  By your
proposal, the bigger the storage tank at a given gasoline station, the
less you should pay per liter for the gas.  Afterall, a bigger tank means
that more liters si the same portion of the available gas compared
to the station with the smaller holding tank.
