Diesel prices in Massena, Canton, Potsdam, Malone, growing out of control

To the Editor:

I drive a diesel truck and when I was in Massena and needed fuel, I went to the only known place for diesel in Massena (mountain mart) I could not believe my eyes, $4.699 per gallon.

I drove by Sunoco in Potsdam earlier that day and remembered seeing $4.199 there. I refused to buy the fuel at this point, I attempted to contact a PR person from Adirondack Energy, Malone with over 10 failed attempts.

I researched other areas including Canton and Malone where mountain marts are located and found the same gouged prices on diesel anywhere from $.30-$.50 difference from any other station nearby.
