Mr. Phillips, this is the same
excuse that the Oil Supply Companies in Ketchikan use every time
this happens. My point of contention in this excuse is that they
didn't use the same process when gas prices were rising earlier
this year. We saw the retail prices change anywhere from every
three days to every 5 days during the rise of gas prices. Now
if you use their same reasoning for pricing we should have seen
prices rise only every six weeks, not every three to five days
as was the case. The Oil companies at that time used the reasoning
that they had to raise prices as it was going to cost them that
much more to replace the fuel sold.
