To the editor,

About two weeks ago, Oct. 27, I filled up with gas in Stephenville at the cheapest place I could find for $2.49, then drove directly to Morgan, population approximately 200. Gas there was $2.22. That seems to blow the better-pricing-for-volume argument out of the water that was mentioned in Tuesday’s paper by Mr. Parsons.

Most of us want to shop locally if we can afford it, but we can’t count on buying high and hoping prices will go low. I’m going to buy where prices are lowest.
