RE: Ketchikan's High Gas Prices
By Floyd Crocker


November 13, 2006

I read with interest the letters explaining why Ketchikan's fuel prices remain so high and I might agree with some of the explanations if the prices went DOWN as fast as they go UP, but that is not the case. The prices go up instantly after any news story that indicates a possible pipeline malfunction, a supply shortage or any other excuse to justify a price increase.

On the other hand, it takes forever (if ever), even after the pipes are fixed and barrel prices are reduced, for the pump prices to go down.

I, for one, don't put much stock in the excuses, I think we are being ripped off by someone, I just don't know who.
