The average nationwide price of regular gas on Friday was $3.27. I passed two local gas stations on the way home from work, and both had increased the price since the day before by 10 cents to $3.55 for regular. What is going on in State College? Why are we paying 28 cents more than the average?
Why are local prices going up 10 cents in one day? Where are our representatives? Where is the CDT? When the national average begins to rise, I am certain our local prices will keep pace. We are not in Iceland and we are not remote. There are no delivery issues, no local shortages, so why?
If prices rise by 30 cents tomorrow, you can bet our local prices will rise accordingly, even though these prices are for three months in the future and have absolutely no effect on the price of fuel already in their storage tanks. I am angry. Is anyone in our local government listening? Are you out there? Do you care? Obviously, the answer is no!
