Juneau gas prices don't come down

Letter to the editor

Posted: Thursday, November 24, 2005

Imagine my surprise as I was driving past Fred Meyer, which has one of the lowest gas prices in town at $2.85, and heard the voice on the radio tell me that the national average for regular gasoline was $2.24.

To add insult to injury, the voice said the city with the highest-priced gas in the nation was Honolulu, at $2.64. How is it possible that our lowest-priced gasoline is 20 cents higher than the nations highest fuel prices and that some stations in town are still flirting with $3 a gallon? Collusion comes to mind, or station owners counting on consumer ignorance and lack of choices to keep prices high.

I suggest the Juneau Empire list the three highest and three lowest gas prices in Juneau along with the national average to keep Empire readers a little better informed and keep the stations a little more honest and competitive.
