Gas prices demand an explanation

When I was a kid growing up, I can remember gas wars that pit the gas stations against each other for our business. Now it seems they all are talking to each other to make sure the gas price in Green Bay is uniform.

On Tuesday, June 24, I happened to be in Peshtigo about 25 miles north and noticed the gas price was $3.49 a gallon. The same gas was $3.69 in Green Bay. Now, as I understand it, the gas has to be trucked to Peshtigo from Green Bay, which to me should make it cost more.

Price fixing comes to my mind along with monopoly, both of which are illegal. If it were to become common knowledge that the gas stations in the Green Bay area are in fact fixing their prices with each other, I think it would only be appropriate that we boycott the owner of any station involved in such shenanigans.

I am sure there is a good explanation for this phenomenon and maybe the Press-Gazette could take a look and get the answer for us. I bet it would put a lot of minds at ease if we knew we are not being screwed.
