Letter: Gasoline prices out of line with neighbors
Why is it that we on the Middle Peninsula seem to get hit with the worst of the gasoline prices? Average price here $2.939, whereas Southside it’s $2.829. Even in Richmond and Roanoke they are looking at $2.859. Here we are just like anybody else just trying to make our way through the day-to-day budget woes, and yet, we have to pay higher fuel prices than those around us. Why is this?
I have viewed the different speculations, but overall, I think we as a population are just getting the raw end of a bad deal. Somehow, we must come together to make this right. I personally am not sure how to do this, that is why I come to you. We have got to get back on the even keel with those around us. I think we have slept too long and have allowed too much to go on without our rebuke. Arise, Gloucester, Mathews and Middlesex! Let your voices be heard.
