Reader Questions Higher Gas Prices In Water Valley

Dear Editor,

    It has come to my attention upon driving in the surrounding counties and cities, especially Batesville and Oxford, that gas prices at the pumps are 20-28 cents per gallon cheaper. As most of these distributors buy from the same refinery in Memphis (and I know which one it is) why is there so much discretion in Water Valley, as to Oxford and Batesville.

  In my opinion I believe there is a little price gouging going on! In other words, I think we are getting used.
