Gas Prices
By David Korkowski

I read with interest all the controversy on the cost of gas in Ketchikan. I am currently visiting in Colorado. When I arrived gasoline was $3.42 a gallon, as I looked today the price had dropped to $2.69 a gallon, a $0.73 decrease.

As I look at the price in Ketchikan I am in dismay. Considering the fact that the governor and legislature has given the residents a 1 year break on gas tax, which contributes $0.08 toward the cost, the prices remain far to high.

Somewhere along the line, Ketchikan is getting the short end of the stick.
