Why is gas 1.74 in Grand Forks?

Here is a good question that was in the today's opinion. Why is gas so high if the price for a barrel of oil is so low? Sounds like we are getting squeezed again by the Grand Forks, ND gas cartel. Heck gas is a lot cheaper in Fargo, ND and don't believe the bravo sierra the Herald and other feed us about its more expensive to ship gas to Grand Forks than Fargo. In fact gas in on average 20 cents cheaper in Fargo than it is here.

I wonder if someone from Grand Forks can elighten us? I can hear the crickets chirping in the back ground. I have found when the price of gas is about the same price as Devils Lake, ND that we are being squeezed.

GRAND FORKS — Gas prices in Grand Forks have gone from $1.64 to $1.74 over the past week.

Meanwhile, crude oil prices have dropped by more than $15 a barrel to less than $40 a barrel.

I think the fuel retailers in Grand Forks are greedier than the money mongers on Wall Street. Grand Forks fuel prices appear to be higher than the prices in any town in the area. Shame, shame, shame.
