I don't buy gas in BG because I REFUSE to support the greed/gouging. I either buy in Franklin or Westmoreland, sometimes even Gallatin ($2.95/gal) if I'm in that area.

Houchens is losing money on their stores. They gotta make up for it somewhere, like the monopoly they have on the gas stations.

Recently drove to Oklahoma and between there and BG, BG had the highest prices! Yet nothing is done about it. Anyone who says the price of gas in BG is high because of supply/demand is a moron, well their kinda right, the stations supply it and demand we buy it. Just plain ole gouging for more profit in BG. I buy anywhere else when I can.

They don't have a monopoly on gas stations.

Houchens owns Minit Marts and most shell affiliated gas stations in town. Don't believe me ask them when you get your gas. I'm sure you can look up online somewhere at everything they own.

I only buy gas in BG when I HAVE to. I'll go out of my way and get it in Franklin or anywhere else even if the price is higher there. Why contribute to the price gouging and greed that has gone here for so long?

That's not a monopoly. They don't own much more than half the gas outlets in town if that many. And yes, I know you meant IGA instead of Minit Mart.

You people need to get up to speed before you start this crap.

Bowling Green is ALWAYS jumping around on their gas prices, and ALWAYS much higher than the surrounding counties! I thought there were laws against price gouging. Why are they getting away with it EVERY single day???

Because WBKO and other sub par news outlets in this area refuse to do any investigative reporting. They're probably afraid to ruffle any feathers in this town.

Better call Channel 5 out of Nashville. See if they will be interested into looking into this ordeal.
