Car gas costs too much

Posted: March 11, 2014 - 6:13pm  |  Updated: March 12, 2014 - 9:57am

Having made a trip to Anchorage this past week, I feel extremely discrimated by the distributers of our gas all over our area. This has been going on for many years. I filled up my gas tank there at 40 cents a gallon less and most stations were at least 30 cents a gallon less.

I have leased a service station, worked for my brother who owned and operated a station for more that 40 years in our home town in Iowa.

Transportation cost can`t be an excuse as his station was on the end of a 1000 mile pipeline with about 70 miles from tank farm to his station. He called me the other day and was amazed that we were paying $4.04 a gallon, and they were paying $3.32 there; We all should be up at arms because of this big difference in Price. Anchorage prices are based on a pipeline from Kenai to them and then trucked to all the stations in the area and at Alyeska ski resort, being hauled approximately 40# miles was 30 cents less. Please Mr. Governor, you being an old oil man should be able to find some equity in helping the people on the peninsula.

I have my own ideas why we are being treated this way is because of taxes. Hope I’m just dreaming. Mine and a number of other Alaska residents’ opinion. Thank you.
