Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letters: Hosed at the pumps

I noticed gas jumped 15 cents overnight Thursday, Nov.2 in Penticton

I noticed gas jumped 15 cents overnight Thursday, Nov.2.

Is that because it snowed? The only ones getting snowed are the public. Bend over folks, we’re getting it again.

I’m sure they will come up with another lame excuse as to why the prices have gone from 1.09 per liter to $1.39 per liter in the course of about one month. This is approximately a 30 per cent increase.

Why don’t they just be truthful and say ‘we are raising the price because it is Christmas shopping season. Many more people will be on the road more often, therefore, we are going to pillage the masses for every penny possible.”

My suggestion is that everyone fill up, get all their shopping done in one fell swoop, and then hunker down until the prices are forced to come down.

To quote the Trumpster, “shameful.”
