Whether or not we drive, we are all struggling with the effects of high gas prices.
However, we play a large role in the extortion by supporting it.
Last week, there was a six cent per litre difference in Aberdeen alone, yet customers continued to patronize the station that are charging the highest price.
By doing this, we are not only contributing to the problem, but we are encouraging it. What business would not raise prices and increase margins if their clients are willing to pay for it?
We must stop rewarding this behaviour and start rewarding the supplier that offers us the best price.
