Man says local gas prices high
Buy locally. How often have we heard this statement from public officials here in Ruston?
Yesterday while in West Monroe and Monroe, I noticed that the gasoline prices ranged from $3.149 to $3.169 per gallon. Ruston prices from $3.329 to $3.369, an 18 to 20 cent difference per gallon. Why such a difference?
You can rest assured that I will buy locally when the prices are comparable. However, when in West Monroe and Monroe and find that the prices are drastically different, I will buy there. It is suspected that others are doing the same thing.
