Gas price questions
Has anyone besides me noticed that gas is going down in a trickle in Potsdam but in Ogdensburg a big difference? I was there today (July 6) and it was $3.64 for regular while we and Canton are at $3.85. I just can’t understand why we are getting hosed on the price. I still believe it is price gouging and I wish some of our elected officials would check this out. I would also like to mention the awful smell of manure on the outskirts of Canton and all the way through the village. I wish there was something they could do about that too.
