I am down in Port Orchard, Washington on vacation and was shocked
to find out that gas prices are $2.00 less a gallon here then
they were in Ketchikan when I left last Friday. I understand
that there is a cost to getting the fuel to Ketchikan, and that
our supply takes longer to go through than it does in the "lower
48", but come on give me a break, this is downright outrageous.
If we are waiting for a new
supply I hope we are going to see a major decrease in price like
$1.75 or more, somehow I don't think that will happen.
It is time for our community
to quit tolerating this obvious price gouging and take action
to correct it before it bankrupts us all.
