Dear Editor:

I asked the question around the first of November as to why gasoline prices were 18-25 cents higher per gallon in Pagosa than in neighboring cities, i.e. Durango, Aztec, Farmington, Bayfield and Dulce? Now, a month later, I’m asking (again) why are gasoline prices 26 cents higher per gallon here than in Durango and at the same franchise? Working class people cannot and should not pay these prices, “to keep our money” in Pagosa. I now wait to fill up in Durango. Anyone ever thought of competitive pricing?
