RE: Gas Prices

Give me a break! There is not a "price gouging" law in Alaska. But there should be. Only our Governor can demand the gas prices go down and stop this gouging.

I understand the explanation Todd Phillips gave, but it doesn't make sense when the nation's gas prices went up dramatically this year, Ketchikan's prices immediately went up. Don't tell me that the price of the gas in the tanks were that high already. If we were paying the price of gas that had been in the tanks for 4 or 5 weeks we would have been paying less than the lower 48 for 4 or 5 weeks before we saw an increase.
