Gas price relief, please!

Just wondering how long it will take again for Ketchikan to see any relief in our gas prices around town. We’ve been hearing for at least a few weeks now that gasoline prices nationally have been falling, and the average today is $3.49 a gallon for unleaded. I for one do not believe the local stations are still charging $4.27 - $4.31 a gallon based on any higher-priced inventory they still have to sell off. That, of course, is the song and dance we always get by way of explanation for our inflated pricing.

Juneau’s gas prices are now lower, Seattle’s gas prices are lower, and Hawaii’s prices are lower, too. The gas station out on the highway’s north end just jacked its price up by 10 cents a few days ago!
