I just returned from visiting family in western Massachusetts. I was in awe of the price of gasoline. I wish I had a pipeline so I could fill up from their pump to my car. At Costco, gas price for regular was $2.94 per gallon, and that was the week before Thanksgiving. If you didn’t have a Costco card, the price elsewhere was $3.07 per gallon. What is the disparity of the $2-plus difference other than greed and wanting to be No.1 in something? We need to put people in office who care about the people of the state and not their coffers. Government needs to treat their budget as if it was their own — then maybe they would think twice.
