I was wondering why the gas prices in Winn Parish is so high compared to other parishes. You can drive to Jonesboro and get gas for 3.17. I got gas today for that price in Alexandria. Why does Winn Parish have to be so high at 3.32?

there was an extended conversation here about 2 weeks ago. Don't think a conclusion was reached,except that the powers that be are gouging the hell out of us.

I've been searching the web to compare gas prices at different locations in Louisiana. The web site is www.louisianagasprices.com . If you see a low gas price, you can report it to this website. Then we can use it to put the squeeze on Winnfield retailers.

Another thing that I don't like... at Wal-Mart you'll see a display that promises a 10-cent a gallon discount if you buy their card. The trick is, if you buy the card, you're lending them money to invest and earn interest on YOUR money! I think that if they can give a 10-cent discount to card holders, they could give a 10-cent discount anyway. They just won't....

The www.louisianagasprices.com site does not require you to register to report a price. So let's post our prices and put the squeeze on 'em to drop the prices. Check the prices in Natchitoches and Alexandria, and compare.

I have bought gas at Wal-Mart before. Go out there, do some shopping, put money on the card, go straight out purchase gas. I don't know that I would really call that a loan.

If you don't use all of it, it's a loan that they earn interest on. Same with the gift cards.

We all need gas for our cars and trucks. We will pay the price that is being charged. If driving through Jonesboro, Alexandria, Monroe, etc... and saving 10 cents or more by filling up there then thats a good deal. Driving to one of these places JUST to buy gas, and NOTHING else is not a good deal.

The doctor has given his thoughts on the subject.

My son said he bought some for under 3.00 at the station in front of Brookshires in Natchitoches. Of course you get their shopping card to do it but if you are in the area why not fill up. I think we need a breakdown on how they charge for gas here. How much is for fuel, how much for other charges like transport and such. A lot of times retailers in an area have a set amount they all will charge and keep it in close range to each other. That way everyone of them wins. Even if it is cheaper in Jonesboro or Natchitoches, how many times do you go there in a week or month? Most of us just buy it as needed. Same thing with every thing else we buy. The store owners keep their prices in range together. If anyone is old enough to remember the gas wars of the 70's, each store would lower their price by a few cents from the guy down the street. I dont know that they made much profit, but the American people as a whole loved it. Even though we had big ole gas guzzlers like Chevy Impalas and Buicks the size of a house gas was not a problem to purchase. Gosh I miss those days.
