Price-gouging businesses cry ‘socialism’

Kentucky mayor got fed up and took action.

"Businesses in a small Kentucky town are crying “socialism” after the mayor got tired of constant price gouging and opened a city-owned gas station.

According to The Associated Press, the Somerset Fuel Center was a hit with consumers when it opened on Saturday. It served 75 customers in the first three hours, and has been averaging about 300 fill-ups per day ever since.

Mayor Eddie Girdler said that residents of Somerset, which is a tourist destination, had complained for years about high gas prices, which the town estimated were 20 to 30 cents higher per gallon than surrounding cities. "
