I’ve been meaning to write this letter for the last 20 years or so but just never got around to it. I also hoped during that time our local service stations would come to their senses but that was a pipe dream on my part.
We travel a great deal during the year and it never ceases to amaze me that our gas prices here are nearly always the highest in western Canada. As I write this, gas down island is $125.9 while our two locals remain at a ridiculous $139.9.
When I inquired why the price was so high, I was informed that the two local station compete against each other and I suppose that means a competition for the highest price they can get.
I am tired of being ripped off just because we live in the North Island, and would like to hear from anyone else who feels the same way, or am I the only one who feels scammed?
A fifteen cent extra profit for every liter of gas sold is a huge amount to earn from the
pockets of us who live here.
