Wha? Gas prices are down on STX!
So gas prices are down on STX, finally! Gateway, Cruzan Petroleum, Shuama, Sion Farm and Super Tanks are all down - $3.77 regular and $3.97 premium.
At Cruzan Petroleum they told me they are buying gas from Puerto Rico now and that it is shipped in weekly.
So it seems that it is possible to get cheaper gas from Puerto Rico, after all, as some were discussing here on this board.
Is this where the gasoline is coming from?
And if so, why has it not been reported in the local media? (unless I missed the story somewhere)
Our media does very little reporting, so there are many things missed. Most of the media reprints press releases without fact checking or analysis. Forget the radio; they mostly focus on emotion and conspiracy theories.
But, the media is losing credibility throughout the U.S. so it's not just here. Credible news is getting harder to find, IMO.
Democracy assumes a free press. We need a new lexicon for current political and press climate which is government by the corporation for the corporation.
Too few people see the value in paying for "news" because it has been free for so long. Now that loud opinions are mistaken for news, the "news" is shaped by popular opinion and not facts, and the corporations are supporting these opinion outlets because they're more popular than real news stations.
