No excuses for raising prices of gasoline

Thursday, September 13, 2001

To the editor:

To raise the price of gas twice in 20 minutes while having the same gas in their storage tanks as 30 minutes ago is a deplorable action by convenience stores in Cape Girardeau. No excuse can accommodate this outrage upon the citizens of Cape Girardeau. I can do this: Keep your gas. Keep your Cokes, chips and food. I will drive past the stores that raised prices.
