Gas prices are nothing more than profiteering

GLASGOW — Dear Editor,

Why is it that the people of Barren County are paying 37 cents a gallon more for gas than Warren County, 10 cents more than Hart County and 10 cents more than Edmonson County?

Murphy Oil at Wal-Mart in Bowling Green is 30 cents cheaper than in Glasgow. Why? Swifty is 30 cents cheaper in Bowling Green than in Glasgow. Why? Let’s call it what it is – price gouging the people of Barren County.

One more thing – why is it when gas goes up, it jumps 30 cents overnight, but when it starts down it’s one or two cents a week? It’s called profiteering at the expense of the public.
