I just can’t help wondering why Lethbridge and region gas stations are charging 20 cents ($1.179)+ a litre more for fuel than Calgary, Okotoks, Edmonton, Leduc ($.95.7-97.5) and most of the province.
God knows we get paid less here to do the same jobs as those places, rent and housing is not exactly affordable, and we aren’t saving it at the grocery store either. What is the reason? And why aren’t people screaming mad?
Are these distributors just going to wait till Trudeau enforces a national carbon tax and jack the prices again? The rural divide continues. No voice unless you live in the city. Easy pickings for corporate greed and political fodder.
Raise hell, Lethbridge.
