Gas Prices
By Colleen Scanlon


December 11, 2008

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.
