Government must take action to end ripoff at the pumps

There can be no justification for the almost 20 per cent increase in gas prices now in effect.

The excuse of a refinery being down is absolute garbage with the current oil glut. Add the fact of oil prices being as low as they are and this is nothing more than an absolute ripoff of the consumer!

If any other group or industry made this type of move, the government would begin all sorts of investigations and actions.

Unfortunately, we don’t have anyone in government with the fortitude (guts) to stand up to the oil industry!

If only we had a government or prosecution person worthy of their position. …

Enough is enough! Time to act!
