Assault on wallet apparently legal
May 24, 2011 - Jim Smith
I always thought assault was against the law in all states, but when it comes to the price of gasoline in West Virginia, I guess I'm wrong.
Last week my wife and I left Parkersburg about 9 a.m. on May14 to drive to Charleston, S.C., for a week of seeing the historic city; pre-Civil War homes; the CSA Hunley, which was the first submarine to sink a warship; Fort Sumter; a Revolutionary War powder magazine; the first Huguenot church in America and generally just to relax in the sun.
When we left Parkersburg, the price of gasoline was $4.09 a gallon, which changed to $3.85 a gallon after we went through the tunnels on Interstate 77 and entered Virginia.
The farther south we went, the cheaper the price of gasoline a gallon became.
In Charleston, the price was an amazing $3.61 a gallon, but when we got back to Parkersburg, it still was nearly $4 a gallon.
I never will understand why or how gasoline can be so much less expensive in neighboring states, especially when the price per gallon was the reason we drove my wife's Honda instead of my Mustang GT.
