Gas price pet peeves

Wiarton Echo - - NEWS -

Dear Ed­i­tor,

The price of gas at Petro Canada was $1.39 per litre on Thurs­day, July 5.

I checked Gas Buddy for prices and Owen Sound had a wide range - from $1.209 to $1.35 and high­est was Petro Canada.

Checked Port El­gin as gas there al­ways seems to be cheaper and it was, at $1.20.1 at Cana­dian Tire and a few oth­ers, but, Pet Can was $1.299

So to stand be­hind my per­sonal boy­cott I drove to Port El­gin and pumped Su­per high oc­tane for 5 cents a litre less than the low­est oc­tane at Pet Can. I nor­mally just pump the low­est oc­tane for my ve­hi­cle but de­cided to pump high oc­tane so no 10 per cent ethanol in it.

I am still boy­cotting the one sta­tion in Wiarton, shame on them I say.

Come on Cana­dian Tire - get a gas sta­tion here and com­pete by low­er­ing your price so that it low­ers Petro Canada’s price.
