Is Anyone Doing

Anything About

High Local Gas Prices?

To the Editor:

Ever wonder why the price of gasoline in Oneonta is usually higher than in surrounding counties? Ever wonder why every gas station in Oneonta usually matches one another’s prices to the penny, rather than engaging in healthy competition?

This would seem to be REAL collusion happening out in the open every day, as opposed to the fake
collusion being touted in Washington D.C.

Just yesterday I had to travel outside of the area and filled my tank in Oneonta for $2.90 per gallon of regular gas.

On the way back I stopped at the gas station at the eastern end of I-88, about an hour’s drive from Oneonta. The price of regular gas there?? $2.66 per gallon.

That’s 24 cents per gallon less than what we pay here for the exact same gasoline!

Why do the Powers That Be permit this to happen? Just curious.
