Remembrance Day long weekend ‘great time to rip off veterans’

Dear editor,

Remembrance Day long weekend — what a great time to rip off the veterans, and other families living in the Comox Valley.

Dear editor,

Remembrance Day long weekend — what a great time to rip off the veterans, and other families living in the Comox Valley.

Sure seems strange that for several weeks all gas stations were holding their prices around $1.13 a litre; then when the long weekend approaches, all suddenly jump their prices overnight by 10 cents a litre.

Makes you wonder who is calling the shots and why they would choose Remembrance Day weekend to start fleecing the veterans again?

These gas companies are just like a bunch of sheep. Thank goodness we have Costco as a shepherd to help keep them in line or we would likely be paying close to $1.50 by now!

Dave Godfrey,
