Letter: Gas price drops create chaos

Dear Editor,

We have never experienced such price volatility for gas. Nowadays, the price can vary from 17 to 12 cents/litre in a day. Such volatility in the evenings, for a short duration, creates a massive lineup of vehicles spilling onto the roads. This is unsafe for the motorists driving in the vicinity.

It cannot be a sign of good business practices for gas stations to have such a lineup.

The gas distribution business is shared between a few major companies; more or less, it is a monopolized business. Why can’t they come up with median price for a half a day with a small variation so that all motorists can have comfortable gas fillings both in the evenings and during day time.
