THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Seasonal gas price increase no accident

This letter is about gas prices. Every year just about the time  people are  starting to travel, these oil companies start shutting down for maintenance. This is no accident. It’s called manipulating the price of gasoline. If these companies really want people to spend their money on oil and gas products instead of learning to utilize green technologies, they need to quit giving the public the shaft. Sooner or later, the public will get tired of it.
