I have three points: (1) Sarah Palin can stop the price gouging!
She can make it state law to stop or prevent price gouging.
Florida's Governor did so after all the price gouging of Hurricane
Andrew in 1989. We have not had a natural disaster, but the
law would prevent gouging. There is a price gouging law in Louisiana
and Texas after checking state gas prices. Why not in Alaska?
(2) How is NOT driving going to lower the gas prices? According
to the article in the Ketchikan Daily News, we have to use up
the high priced gas in order to make room for the cheaper gas.
Drive MORE. By the time summer comes, they will go back up again
anyway. Oh, and by the way, concerning our summer visitors who
are bused to various attractions... busses use DIESEL! Not regular
(3) Gas at Last Change Gas station (by the carwash going south)
is $3.39 a gallon for regular....Do they have a different source
for gasoline than Safeway or Chevron or Ward Cove who all have
it for $3.75? Did the daily news publish the picture of the
gas station in Wrangell with much higher gas prices than us,
to make us feel better and to let us know things could be worse?
Or that we could be ripped off more in Wrangell than we are
Just wanted to pass that along.
