Gas Price-Gouging

How come Woodstock gas prices are about a dime over Crystal Lake? Woodstock prices have come down a little, but there is no reason whatsoever for them to be higher than Crystal Lake?

What can you do? Next time you buy gas in Woodstock, ask the clerk for the name of the station's management office and phone number. Call and gripe. Tell your friends to call and gripe. Tell the clerk that you are going to buy gas in Crystal Lake and ask the clerk to inform her manager.
