Letter: Saving Money At The Pump

In response to Robert Kuoppala’s recent question of why Wellington gas stations charge up to 40 more cents per gallon than other area outlets (Letters, Aug. 29), I’d submit that with our many wealthy residents, it’s “because they can.” I, instead, fill my car at either the Shell station on State Road 7 at Southern, the Hess outlet on SR 7 at Lantana, or the BP station near Whole Foods Market. All have excellent prices that are the same, cash or credit. Also, watch for the Publix coupons which let you buy a $50 Shell gas card for $40, with a required grocery purchase. On a 10 gallon fill at Shell, between the lower price and the Publix deal, I save more than $10 every time!
