I started to question how the stations could justify that because they don't fill up their tank in the ground on a daily basis. That's when I heard about Wid Boyles. He owns the BP Short Stop on Route 23 in South Shore, Ky. I was told by a close friend of his that Boyles only changes the price on his pumps when he gets his tank in the ground filled. He then charges us according to the price he pays for the gas at that time and doesn't change the price on his pumps until his next fill-up.
That being the case, I'll give you another example. Three weeks ago on Friday, I traveled through Portsmouth where the gas prices were an average of $3.39. Then after going into Kentucky to the Short Stop, I found the price of gas only was $2.99, a difference of 40 cents. It stayed that way for at least a week while the prices in Portsmouth jumped up and down on a daily basis.
With all this in mind, I would like to encourage the consumers of Portsmouth to take a little drive across the river and give your business to an honest businessman.
