THE PEOPLE SPEAK - Propane increase isn’t necessary


— Well here we go again! Propane costs are going higher by the day. I bought propane on Jan. 2, 2014, and paid $2.29 per gallon. On Jan. 24, 2014, I paid $4 per gallon. At that time I was told that on next Monday, the cost per gallon would be $4.90. Now I have heard that next week, it will increase again to $6.50.

Is it necessary? Of course not; we are being gouged by those who only want to get richer at the expense of those who can least afford it. Someone please help us.
