GAS: Looks like price gouging

| June 16, 2023 1:00 AM

I’m curious why gas prices in the area jump 20 cents a gallon instead of a smaller increment like most locales. Of course I also wonder why the price of gas in Wallace and Kellogg as of June 11 is 60 cents a gallon more than Coeur d’Alene and Haugen in Montana.

I know transportation costs can’t be responsible so it must be the owners enjoying a large profit margin.

I, for one, tell tourists to fuel elsewhere and save money. Thirty cents more a gallon I can accept; 60 cents is price gouging.
