Glasgow Gasoline Prices On The Rise

By  | 

GLASGOW, Ky (WBKO) -- After fighting for fair gas prices more than a month ago, the Glasgow community is starting to feel the increase once again.

"Well, the prices were steadily around $3.30. It was great," said Belinda England, Boycott Glasgow Gasoline group member.

More than a month ago, members of the community joined forces when gas prices were extremely high compared to surrounding towns. Through Facebook signatures, phone calls to politicians and collaboration, gas prices began to fall. The group feels as if their efforts were being noticed.

"People started saying well really it made a difference! I said well I hope, because I like to think that. I guess we will never know for sure. I like to think we made a difference, at least our voice was heard," said Belinda England, Boycott Glasgow Gasoline group member.

This morning, Glasgow woke up to prices on the rise. Today's increase of more than twenty cents has the city talking again.

"It was alright just a couple of weeks ago. But, now the gas has done jumped up. Money is limited these days and it's just kind of a struggle," said Kelly Summers, consumer.

The city of Glasgow is finding itself in a pit once again, as Bowling Green gasoline has maintained a steady price.

"$3.55 is not great, but it's nothing like being $3.89," said Belinda England, Boycott Glasgow Gasoline group member.

A member of the “Boycott Glasgow Gasoline” says the group will resume its efforts if the price discrepancy becomes too large.

"If it starts to do that again, then I am sure we will all start meeting again and figure it out," said Belinda England, Boycott Glasgow Gasoline group member.

"We do need to come together because we are the people. We are the ones who make the economy work. If it weren't for us, the big people couldn't fill their pockets," said Kelly Summers, consumer.
