Go Gas re-opens

Gas is once again flowing at area Go Gas stations. When the company's gas pumps ran dry over the weekend, they did not refuel. Managers said their wholesale cost was way too high, and they didn't want to pass that cost on to their customers. Today, Go Gas was able to get gas from one supplier. An area manager told us the stations aren't making any money on it because gas is being sold at cost for $3.99 a gallon of regular. Tammy Foster, cashier, said "We've been busy, steady, better than yesterday." Go Gas managers said they plan to continue selling gas as long as they can buy and sell it at a competitive price.

What a load of bovine droppings!

"Managers said their wholesale cost was way too high, and they didn't want to pass that cost on to their customers." Metinks a more likely story is that the increased wholesale cost plus the current distributor's AR balance from Go-Gas placed them over a pre-set credit limit. No business in the world would make such an idiotic decision intentionally. Think about it.... "We're in business to sell you gasoline, but we simply decided that gasoline is too expensive this week, and you shouldn't buy any." Talk about driving your customers into the arms of your competitors! Now we're expected to believe that they're selling gasoline for their exact cost? That's a mighty big loss leader, considering there's not much else to buy at a Go-Gas. I thought Burger King was the home of the whopper....?

While some might think it's

While some might think it's bad business, I think it shows integrity. I hope this decision doesn't impact employee's. I know I will be filling at Go Gas from now on!


good deal considering it's 3.95 at Kangaroo...
