I was at the city council meeting monday night and there was a big discussion on the high price of gasoline here in somerset but not one word in the paper about it they printed everything else that was talked about but gas pretty sorry for a paper that makes their money from the people in somerset and pulaski county and will not try to help.

That says something, if gas prices were talked about at the meeting at length but the paper didn't report it while reporting all other council business.

Prices elsewhere drop $0.20-0.30 after Thanksgiving, while we locals get 3 cents knocked off.

Pathetic.

Your complete lack of understanding about how gas prices are calculated and controlled is astounding.

100.3 FM just mentioned Somerset gas prices again. They said that the people of Somerset are getting screwed and our gas prices are higher than Califirnia's.
It's odd that an out of state radio station has more interest in our gas problem than our own local media outlets.

Fist, your incompetence in this matter humors me. Why are you getting so worked up?

This is a public forum- people discuss all sorts of issues here. Just because you feel so strongly about "YOUR OPINION" doesnt make you right. How do you not get annoyed with the ridiculous prices around here?!? I understand it's a business- they have to make money..but they're RAPING US!! Highway robbery at it's finest, I tell ya!!

Gas prices are UNREAL these days- it's sad when we get excited over $3.25 a gal. when we use to stroke out over it....

What's this world coming to?!
