Give us a break on gasoline prices in Boone County

Dear Editor:


If people remember a couple of years ago, prices went up for whatever the reason, and it came back down in Charleston and Logan areas .10, .15, and sometimes even .20 cents cheaper on a gallon. But Madison and Danville area stayed the same.


It went on for a couple of months, imagine the money they must have made. Storms come and go…prices rise before it ever happens and forget to decrease when the storms have been long gone.


Even though we know the gas they raised was not even effected by the coming weather conditions. And Boone County is doing the same thing again.


Gas was $3.65 a gallon at Cross Lane, and less than Boone County at all other surrounding counties.


I, for one and my family, will gas up in Charleston or Logan anytime we are there, to keep from paying these high prices.


Would love to keep our business in the county, but not when I feel like I am being ripped off.


Who else feels they have had enough of this? This comes at a time when so many of our neighbors have been laid off from work and need to get a BREAK somewhere close to home.
