To the editor:
Oil speculation certainly plays its role in the cost of a gallon of gas at the pump, but the service stations/oil companies seem to play their part. I have been following the daily market reports vs. cost of a gallon of gas at the pump and provide the following cost-per-gallon based upon a given day’s oil market result. On Feb. 15, oil traded at $101.80 and gas sold for $3.35. On March 1, oil traded at $108.84 and gas sold for $3.65. Wednesday, oil fell by $2.54 to $101.47, yet gas ROSE to $3.77. Hey, quit gouging us!
