Do Armory Drive gas stations conspire?Published 10:05am Wednesday, November 21, 2012
To the Editor:
I went to Suffolk about two weeks ago and unleaded gas there was $3.15 a gallon.
Why is it that our fuel service stations are stuck at a higher price $3.35?
I heard a rumor several months ago that the Armory Drive gas stations would get together and decide what they were going to charge so the price would be the same.
As I said, it was a rumor, but who knows?
Price gouging is not something that helps our community. We all work hard, and with the current financial situation our community finds itself in, I believe this practice does nothing more than price gouging.
How greedy can people be? I understand that the companies need to make money from selling fuel, but I do not understand why it is less expensive 25 miles east of us.
It is even cheaper up near Petersburg.
