It’s time to boycott large gasoline companies

To go along with Dale Stuart’s letter in the June 9 Advocate, I have had the opportunity to be in Edmonton recently, and the price was 94.4 to 96.9 cents.

To go along with Dale Stuart’s letter in the June 9 Advocate, I have had the opportunity to be in Edmonton recently, and the price was 94.4 to 96.9 cents.

I was in Rocky Mountain House the next day, and the price was $102.9, and then I come to Red Deer and I see somebody trying to raise the price to $114.9.

I think that we (all the people buying gas) should boycott all of the big companies and show them that we are sick of them shafting us whenever they feel like it so that they can make a profit.

Boycott the big ones and buy your gas at the Co-op or UFA and see how long it takes them to smarten up.
