Buy gas everywhere else but no in Malone. If people stop buying gas in Malone, the stores will lower the prices.

My Elderly Parents live on a fixed income.. cannot afford to drive out of Malone just to get gas. as many people cannot...so they pay the highest prices for gasoline in the state except for NYC. The people setting the prices here just don't care... I hope the get their just karma...

I always feel proud to know that money is going into the pockets of a wonderful family,
It's nice to see all of the state police vehicles gas up there as well as all the folks from National Grid with those big trucks. Even professional organizations like these support "Mountain Mart"....hey and none of those jokes about cops loving to eat donuts, OK?
all of the state troopers & all of national grid folk , do not gass up there. maplefields probably get more of them. and i'm sure other stations get some of the business also. don't be so lame-brained. but the thing is MOST of it is mobile. it's a shame

if they figure it out , they probably save money by driving to massena or out of town to gas up . or cost the same. ALSO , get them out for a change. BJ'S have double filtered gas. join bj's and stock up on a few things. I'm sure it would not cost them any more.

there are people that move to messena because it costs them less to live there. you can heat your house on electricity, CHEAPER than a regular electric bill in malone. between the fuel & and eletric , there is a BIG savings for the pocket.

The Reason everything is more expensive in malone is because most of those businesses customers are getting government assistants. Another words they charge more because the money is coming out of OUR/Government pockets. Franklin County is noted as the welfare county of all New York. And i believe thats exactly the way some people want to keep it like that. Seriously look at what sort of jobs has come into this county. minimum wage jobs, dollar stores, motels nothing that pays a good enough living to support a family, Hence Government assistants. So you have 2 choices really, pay the price or go somewhere else. End of story

which i'm sure the businesses are getting government grants, also government assistants. and also a lot of these business are getting government assistants with wages . gov. pays for half of the wages for 6 months to a year. thats why the have a big turn over for their help. not agood thing for the tax payer. SO they should be able to come down on their prices, but the DO NOT. GREED

I think that part of the reason gas is more in Malone is because taxes on properties are so damn high here. Face it. Malone's taxes are out of control. One poster mentioned Massena and municipal electric rates. It's true, Massena has great rates because it's a municipal electric company - just like Tupper Lake, Lake Placid, Plattsburgh and many others. Malone looked into it but Niagra Mohawk wanted "exit" fees for us dropping them. That's like K-mart charging me for shopping at Walmart. The town leaders bought into it and the matter was dropped.
What get's me is that a little town like Dannemora has cheaper gas than anyone does. Stewarts is traditionally 15 cents or more cheaper than Malone. Why? And why it is LeRoux's can charge so much less? Malone is under the scrutiny of price fixing and everyone knows it. I've asked Stewart's employees and managers why they can't lower their prices and the reply is that the corporation in Saratoga Springs dictates the price based on the other places in Malone. They don't raise it because they need to, they raise it because they CAN. With the 35 gallon tank I have on my truck I can save because I usually have to head to Massena or Plattsburgh about every 2 to 3 weeks anyway. I make sure I'm low and then I fill up at those places that are so much cheaper. Beware though at the reservation. Their pumps are not tested and certified accurate. You may not be getting a full gallon of gas for the price you pay.
Anyway, good old Malone is costing us more money that we can hand out. It's time to leave this place. Much as I love the area and have raised a family here, the values of treating your neighbors with respect have long gone. Just ask the Monette family. They couldn't care one lick about anyone except themselves and a full bottle of beer. Too bad too. They're in the perfect place to help Malone out of this hole. What in God's name would Malone do without the 3 prisons we have? It would have died by now - that's what. So sad. Such a nice little town it was. Now it's just a place for welfare bums and cheaters out to take your money.
