Letter: Ripped off at the pumps and in the air

Can you imagine going into a car dealership in Kelowna and all the autos at every dealership were the same price exactly to the cent.

To the editor:

Friday morning and I just read two very good letters from Bruce Stevenson and Ian MacLean (Aug. 28 Kelowna Capital News).

How do the oil companies get away with fixing the price of gasoline and the great carbon tax ripoff? Can you imagine going into a car dealership in Kelowna and all the autos at every dealership were the same price exactly to the cent.

I would like to see some investigative journalism from the newspapers and TV to find out why.

And here’s another area of Canadians being gouged—airfares and holidays. It’s not unusual to see $400 worth of tax on a $700 holiday. On top of all this our currency is practically worthless.
