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.
