Gas Prices Are Higher In The Valley

Dear Editor:

  I know most everyone is so thankful to see gas prices drop in recent weeks. But I just have to mention the fact that even at $2.67 a gallon at one local station, we are still way out of line with other nearby towns.

  At this writing, Batesville has a low of $2.45 a gallon and one hour away we are seeing $2.29-$2.38 in more than one town.

  We want to buy in Water Valley and we hear this message from our leaders. But if I am 30 or 40 miles away and can save 25-30 cents per gallon, I’m going to fill the tank. (No hard feelings.)

  Come on guys, we can do better, money is leaving Water Valley every day.

Gas Prices Are 40 Cents Higher Than in Neighboring Batesville

Dear Editor,

  This Monday morning oil prices have dropped to the $60 a barrel range,  a drop of close to 60 percent from the high at $147 a barrel. The prices on the pumps in Batesville this morning were at $2.25 a gallon. The price on the Water Valley By-pass this morning was at $2.64 a gallon—nearly 40 cents a gallon higher. This price difference seems worthy of adjectives I choose not to use!
