The Town-Crier recently printed my letter supporting the proposed RaceTrac gas station on Southern Blvd. at Royal Palm Beach Blvd. I argued that this was already a commercialized area, so no residential area will be impacted, and that RaceTrac routinely charges 30 to 40 cents a gallon less than other brands currently serving our area.
Another letter writer then took me to task because I live in Wellington, saying that if I want a station, have it be built in Wellington. Believe me, I’d love to have one here, but that’s not the plan. I just want to point out that we shop in Royal Palm Beach just as you shop on our side of Southern. It’s one big community, and at one 12-gallon fill-up a week, that’s a saving on gas of around $200 a year, per car you own. Now, isn’t that more desirable than some nice statues and fountains at the community’s entrance?
