MASONTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA -- As a consumer from your state, I felt it was my responsibility to bring to your attention the following incident. I think it is terrible that the gas stations are raising prices so high in such a short period of time. The prices in my area rose 20 cents on the gallon yesterday. I know that every gas station in town did not get a new shipment of gas yesterday. They are taking advantage of the situation down south and price gouging. I realize that the president is supposed to release some oil from the US reserve sites but how quickly is this going to happen? Will it really help the consumers? Please contact me if you need more details regarding this incident.
