Gas prices
By Carl Webb


September 16, 2008

Take it from the Oilman. The fuel prices at the pumps are being controlled in this small town by Carrs/Safeway.

The only way the smaller guys can survive is to try and float with the prices set by the big guy. The big guy is the one that gets the best price because they move the most volume. I can not tell you how much profit the big guy makes on one gallon, what I can tell is it is a gracious amount.

I now choose to buy from the little guys who keep their dollars in our struggling community.
