LETTER: Gas in Summerland more expensive than in rest of region

Prices in Summerland are noticeably higher than in Penticton

Dear Editor:

For a long time, our gas station prices have always been higher than surrounding communities.

For a small town with four gas stations, we are being ripped off. This has been written about in the past.

A week and a half ago, all Summerland stations were at 148.9¢ a litre while Penticton was at 139.9¢ a litre.

The Shell just moved to 144.9¢ on Sunday while Penticton again dropped to 137.9¢ last Thursday or Friday. One particular station is always the first to raise and the last to drop prices. The current scenario confirms such.

This has gone on too long for our small town. Something must be done. Boycott or buy elsewhere. Save money. These people are not for us.
