Letter: Why did I pay so much for gas?

Headline Oct. 14 in the Grand Junction newspaper: “Gas prices dip below $3.”

Huh, I would swear I just filled up at New Castle and paid $3.34 9/10. Couldn’t be, because that would imply we are back into the Good Old Days of being abused by our local fuel industry. And they assured us they would never do that.

Maybe my memory is getting spotty — and maybe the gasoline barons are just hoping my memory is getting spotty.
