Ketchikan gas prices
By Karen Ramsey

Ketchikan-area gas stations have been charging $4.45 a gallon
for unleaded gas since about the third week of July. Today, August
25, the news media reported that the average price in the U.S.
is $3.69 a gallon. I wonder how long it will take for stations
here to start reflecting that downward trend of the price of
oil and gas. Will we drivers in Ketchikan have to suffer the
fate of paying at least 70 cents more per gallon than the national
average for a lot longer? I hope not. Even in Honolulu where
drivers usually pay even more exorbitant prices for gas than
we do, the most expensive gas station today is charging $4.34.
Gas stations in Ketchikan, please give us a break soon!
