To the Editor: 
There is something magical about Carroll County.  Anyone who has lived here for more than a few years will know what I am talking about.  As soon as you cross that invisible border into Carroll County it happens.  The price of a gallon of gasoline is suddenly 15, 20 or 30 cents more!  What is it about our county that makes our gasoline worth more than a gallon in Scio, or Amsterdam, or Bergholz, a mere ten miles away?

I have been asking myself this question for quite some time and I just can’t seem to figure it out.  I have also asked the Attorney General of the State of Ohio to try to figure it out, as it is his job to protect consumers from being “ripped off.”  We have truly been ripped off all of these years, so it is time for something to be done.  I encourage anyone else who is concerned to visit the website of the Attorney General Mike DeWine and let him know what you think.  I think the problem is nothing other than unmitigated greed, and I don’t think we should have to put up with it any longer.
