Those Gas Prices
For years gas prices in Moore County have consistently been 15 to 30 cents more than in neighboring counties. When asked why, station owners typically say, “This is a resort area.”
However, a female store owner said, “I am going to lower my prices even though the other owners will give me hell.” Her statement shows that owners are conspiring to keep prices artificially high in Moore County.
This is against the Sherman Antitrust laws. We should all file a complaint with N.C. State Attorney General Roy Cooper at http://www.ncdoj.gov/getdoc/59be4357-41f3-4377-b10f-3e8bd532da5f/Complaint-Form.aspx.
The more of us who file a complaint, the more likely we will get fair gas prices in Moore County.
