No it wasn't. Lyon Mountain gas is ALWAYS higher than Malone.

Not always as there have been times that Lyon Mountain has been involved in the gas war in Dannemora that takes place between Stewart's and Maplefield's. I don't know about right now since it's been a while that I have taken 374 to go to Plattsburgh.

Look back into Feb. 2008 and the price of crude oil was the same then as it is today - around $96 a barrel. But the price of gas during that same time was $3.04 per gallon. So why is it when the price of crude is hovering around the same price as 2008 - the price of gasoline is 80 cents more now than is was then? You don't have to believe me. You can go here: http://www.eia.gov/oog/info twip/twip_crude.html and see it for yourself. Click on the link for "more data" and it'll take you way back to the 80's for prices back then all the way to now. You can do this for gas, oil, diesel, propane. Very interesting reading.

NOTE: THe last post I made was suppose to be posted under the name SCREWING THE USA; not SCREW THE USA. My bad. All my humble apologies to everyone. This country may not always agree with us who live here, but it's still the best country in the world hands down.

Here's the complete link to the site I posted

Observer, the million gallon limit was set by the wholesaler, not Monettes, so you undermined your own argument. They are a drop in the bucket to a wholesaler who deals in tens of millions of gallons, you grossly overestimate their influence in the world.
And I highly doubt that Maplefields and Stewarts are doing what the Monette's tell them to, and they have their fuel delivered by someone other than Monettes. Why does no one bash them, perhaps they're setting the "fixed" price.
Brushtongirl says it right-look beyond Malone. Typical small town-success breeds contempt.
You say they could make a good profit, maybe so, but they choose to meet the going price in Malone, and it's their business, not yours.
I know for a fact that Stewarts checks the local prices and adjusts theirs to the market trend. This is indeed a fact. I'm sure others do the same. Whatever the market will bear I suppose. The biggest problem we have is the land taxes these places have to pay in this village and town and county. It's outrageous! And local permitting for in-ground tanks adds that much more to them all. But Malone's biggest problem is the cost of doing business. Taxes!

Its not a secret to those of us who live here,,, if the world markets or world events even push oil prices up,,, within a day or so the prices in Malone rise,often 4 or more cents at a clip and are always higher than surrounding areas. However, went prices go down on the world scene,, it take a week or better for local adjustment to be made and then only a penny or two a gallon.. I notice that the Stewards on the corner of Ft Covington St is always a penny lower than all the other stations,,,could this be a kind of local ploy to show to the people that watch price fixing, that there is really competition here,,, if so its a joke.. THe greed factor has been present in the hearts and minds of those selling gasoline in Malone for years,, and they just laugh our pathetic attempts to do anything about it. They know there is little if anything we can do, and are willing to accept our anger or frustration because of the extra money they make,,, its money over all that counts,, they show their true character each day,,, we the pee ons suffer they live in grand style and care not what we think or do,

contact Betty Little, see what she says. Topix is not going to get you anywhere. I have contacted her, the more people that contact her maybe something will get done. If nothing gets done, DON'T RE-ELECT.
