We are going through a pandemic, which has hurt a lot people in the pocket book and we wake up one morning to discover our gas prices have take a sky-rocketing jump from 115.9 to 129.9 per litre, a jump of 14 cents per litre.
In the past year, when the gas prices took a jump upward, the powers that be would tell us that the hikes were due to demand. Since restrictions due to the pandemic and a reduction in vehicular, air and sea level, what is the reason for the hike this time? Greed.
Shouldn’t our government be looking into this ridiculous increase? Perhaps our city council should be putting pressure on higher government on this matter.
