State gas-fixing is hurting the economy

Wisconsin state representatives and senators, this morning I paid $3.98 a gallon at our local BP station. It is no wonder BP can lay out $20 billion for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Their profits are very detrimental to our economy. You want to solve our economic problems, reduce the price of gas back to pre-recession times.

The government in the state of Wisconsin has now been successful in driving the independent gas station out of business. As I drive around I see small stations boarded up and closed. Chapter ATCP 105.007 has now closed down the independents and we the consumer now must pay the price.

A good start to solving the problem would be to repeal this piece of legislation and allow gas wars as in the past. The state should get out of the price-fixing business for the big oil companies. As the capitalist would say, let the supply and demand principle work. This would be a good first step. The courts can say what the like, but the people know price fixing when they see it. Please repeal this economy-damaging piece of legislation.
