Letter: Gas prices rising much faster in Sugar Grove

To the Editor:

I’ve been a Sugar Grove resident for 14 years. I’ve grudgingly paid 20-30 cents more for a gallon of gas in town than I would anywhere else in the Fox Valley area because it’s convenient.

This weekend (Dec. 8 and 9), gas in Sugar Grove is roughly 50 cents higher per gallon than any of our neighboring towns. The village tells me it’s not a tax issue, so what could possibly cause gas prices to be so much higher in town than anywhere else in the area?

The four stations in town always have the same price for gas, when typically you’d see gas stations in close proximity compete for business by being a few cents cheaper than their competitors. I won’t go so far as to allege gouging or price fixing, but sometimes you have to wonder.
