Letters to the Editor: Gas Prices in Sebastian, Florida.

I’d like to thank you for writing the articles regarding gas prices in Sebastian. I believe these articles are the direct reason gas prices have decreased in Sebastian to better reflect Vero Beach and Melbourne.

Something is definitely wrong when gas in Nowhereville Palm Bay on U.S. 1 is less expensive than in Sebastian.

Having lived in the area for nearly 20 years, seeing prices cheaper in Vero certainly surprised me; when I lived near South Beach, I’d drive to Sebastian for gas because it was always cheaper even including Sam’s. Now I live in Sebastian and work in Melbourne so I get my gas up north.

However, I have to send my wife to Vero Beach to fuel up or I take her car to Melbourne one day of the week.

Since you started writing these articles, I have seen gas prices go from $0.50 higher than Vero and Melbourne to $0.10-15 higher. As I said, I directly attribute this to your articles.
