Paying More for Gas
I have always been thankful for where I was born, grew up and now live. The No. 1 reason is that it is in the country. The No. 2 reason is that I live as close to Harpers Crossroads as I do to Carthage.
You might wonder about No. 2 so I will explain. I recently purchased diesel fuel for my truck at Harpers Crossroads and paid $3.69 per gallon. I noticed that regular gasoline was priced at $3.29. I was in Carthage the next day and noticed regular gas was $3.52 and diesel was 3.92.
I do not understand the difference in the price, but I do know where I will be buying my fuel. Do any of these merchants understand why more and more people are shopping outside Moore County, which has become the “pay me MORE county?”
