From time to time, we who live in Summerland are asked to support our local businesses.
It is a fair request and for the most part I am happy to oblige, until we move on to the business of gas prices in Summerland.
The gas price in Summerland on Nov. 3 was $1.269 a litre and in Penticton it was $1.219 a litre.
This is a huge difference and I wonder why.
I have refused to support the gas stations in Summerland and have filled up in Penticton and done my shopping there.
Also, I would imagine the gas being charged will deter any prospective tourist from venturing into downtown Summerland.
They will continue their journey for gas and shopping to Penticton and not Summerland.
