for sure, perhaps overly so. But it was just an analogy, designed to draw inference to ONE aspect only.
A truck driver, broken down in a truck stop might feel he is being robbed at the point of a gun. Truck stop (vendor) repair prices are quite high, and truck drivers are at their mercy, especially in the middle of nowhere. I've often heard the phrase "highway robbery" in truck stop diners. ;)
Just another analogy, I'm sure I'll draw some heat for.
