Letter to the Editor: Truckee gas prices are outrageous

According to national news reports, the average price of gas in the U.S. has risen $.12 to $.15 in the last three weeks. In the same time period, the price in Truckee has risen $.40. Does anyone else feel like we are getting ripped off?

Iand#8217;ve also read where Truckee is one of the most expensive places to live. As the Church Lady would say: and#8220;Could it be the price of gas? Could it be that Satan owns the gas companies and gas stations?and#8221;

With our local economy suffering from lack of snow this winter, the exorbitant price of gas is sure not going to help matters.
