I would like to comment on D. Boyko's letter (Fed up over gas prices, Feb. 19) and Jon Manchester's earlier editorial (Greed at the gas pumps, Feb. 16).
While Manchester would not name the two oil companies that consistently try to bump prices up, they are Shell and Petro-Canada.
As far as getting the best deal, one only needs to be a smart consumer. I used to gas up at Superstore where I received a five-cent-per-litre discount.
When they dropped it to 3.5 cents, I switched to Canadian Tire where they still offered five cents. '
Now, Superstore offers 7.5 cents off and I am back there.
When the big oil stations bumped their prices to 128.9, Superstore remained at 118.9 for the rest of the day, making them actually 17.5 cents less than big oil.
I drive by the Shell at KLO and Benvoulin often when they have again pushed up the price to see if others will follow. Every time there are several cars taking it on the chin because the drivers can't be bothered to check gasbuddy.com or even look at alternate choices. They get what they deserve.
