Price-Shopping for Gas

Before you buy gas in Woodstock, be sure to check the prices up and down Route 47.

Yesterday Shell ($4.39/gal.) and Jewel Express were over $.20/gal. higher than bp ($4.11 - Surprise!) and the Marathon at 47 and Lake Ave.

Some oil know-it-all on TV news said that stations had to raise their prices in order to pay expected higher prices from refineries (meaning distributors). What a lie! Did he think they would lower their prices in anticipation of lower prices from wholesalers?

They can recover higher costs to purchase gasoline WHEN the higher-cost gas has been delivered and is in the ground, ready to be pumped into vehicles.

Anything else is price-gouging!
