Letter: Stop getting fleeced at gas station ‘convenience store’

Fight back economically. I you act like a sheep you will certainly be fleeced.

To the editor:

Regarding gas prices.

Over the summer Okanagan residents have paid as much as 30 cents per litre, or approximately $1.50 per gallon, more than in other towns or cities across Canada.

Why?

The reason the oil companies do this is because they can.

What can you do?

You have to buy gas at a gas station. Point taken—I get it.

But you don’t have to buy anything else—no pop, cigarettes, candy, juice or any other high-priced so-called convenience store products.

In short, fight back economically. I you act like a sheep you will certainly be fleeced.
