Letters to the Editor

Gas, gas everywhere–why does it cost us so much?

To the editor:

Our Prime Minister goes off to China to flaunt our abundance of fuels for sale and here in Kelowna the price of gas goes up.

If we have so much of everything he mentioned, then why are we paying so much for our fuels?

Kelowna is terrible for gas prices all the time and the station owners play us for fools when they lower the price for a period of time then crank it up higher and we say nothing.

We are being ripped off.

As far as this weekend’s barrel price, it was down lower and we still pay more.

Again, why should we be paying the high prices if we have so much we want to export it? Something’s wrong with this picture.

I also feel that rather than build pipelines to export our oil and gas we should be building refineries and create jobs this way. Keep it in the country first.
