Gas stations gouging drivers

With today’s oil prices at a four-year low, why is it that the Nanaimo prices at the pumps don’t go down proportionally?

To the Editor,

With today’s oil prices at a four-year low and predicted to go even lower, why is it that the Nanaimo prices at the pumps don’t go down proportionally?

Prices in Courtenay and also Victoria area were down. This is a clear case of gouging; it’s obvious that there is a consortium of business people in and around Nanaimo reponsible for this gouging.

It’s time we all started to boycott the gas companies that have numerous gas stations and support the small companies. Higher gas prices means a higher cost of living, not to mention the principle of it all.
