Why Is Gas More Expensive In Mendota?

Posted by wlpo on June 5, 2012

How can gas prices be a quarter cheaper just 15 minutes down the road?  That’s what a former alderman is asking in Mendota.

According to the NewsTribune, John Pierson brought the discrepancy up to the Mendota City Council last night.  He says he knows the council can’t really lower prices but could put pressure on service station operators.  Mayor David Boelk agreed with Pierson and said he would like to talk to Greg Gromann who runs two gas stations and convenience stores in Mendota.

Right now, unleaded gas is 14 to 20 cents more expensive in Mendota than in most other places in the valley.
