Price of gas is more of a concern

I think people should be more concerned with the price of gas.

I keep reading these letters in the paper written by people in regards to a new health centre, saving the waterfront, local elections, property taxes, or what to do with a piece of land.

I think people should be more concerned with the price of gas.

As of today, a barrel of oil is below $80 and continues to drop. But gas prices continue to increase. When oil was over $110 a barrel, gas was $1.50 a litre. Now oil is down 30 per cent, but gas had only dropped two to three per cent. If this continues, when or if oil goes back to over $100 a barrel, gas will be close to $2 a litre.

I think people should write or contact their elected officials and put a stop to this gouging before it gets out of hand.
