Notley must control wild gas price fluctuations

Dear Premier Rachel Notley, So as oil prices float around the $41-a-barrel mark, gasoline prices are still lurking way over a buck a litre. The price at $1.15 is higher than when oil was $58 a barrel.

Dear Premier Rachel Notley,

So as oil prices float around the $41-a-barrel mark, gasoline prices are still lurking way over a buck a litre. The price at $1.15 is higher than when oil was $58 a barrel.

So what are the excuses now for raising gasoline prices? Would it be an increase in the Alberta minimum wage? Extra tax? Either way, it’s just another BS excuse.

They’ll say anything try to explain away their greed so they can gouge the consumers. Now they even conveniently run out of gasoline at different stations.

When is this new Alberta government going to deem gasoline an essential service to the public and regulate the prices at an affordable rate with a “reasonable” profit to the companies that produce it and market it?

How many billions of dollars of annual profit do these companies have to make to be satisfied?

When are you going to stop them from robbing us at the pumps?

Quit jackin’ around, Rachel, and just do it. Do something positive for the people who voted for you.

Your position in office is a fragile at best and could end next election.
