Natural gas prices absurd

To the Editor,

It has  been brought to my attention how much we pay for the cost of natural gas.

I’m just one of those people who gets their bill and just pays it without looking at it or thinking about it. I should pay better attention.

However, I was informed that my sister-in-law in Kelowna pays $2.90 per gigajoule. My mother-in-law in Burnaby pays $3.39 per gigajoule. We here in Nanaimo pay $14.32 per gigajoule.

What’s with that?

Don’t give me excuses about how we get the gas and where it comes from, etc.

That price difference is just absurd. How can that be justified?
