 March 14, 2007 - Letter submitted by John Butler, Knightstown

Am I a hostage of Knightstown, or naive?

Experts say that 40-45 percent of adults in our community travel 30-plus miles everyday to work. This gives them an opportunity to shop around. I'm retired and have no reason to travel outside of K-town. Therefore, I must be part of the other 55-60 percent.

Shortly after all the doom and gloom weather broke, I drove to New Castle for business. There, I realized I needed gas. Nearly every gas station showed a 23 cent per gallon savings from the four gas stations in Knightstown. Upon seeing this savings, I questioned my philosophy of "If you live, then buy here."

I still believe in supporting our local businesses, but perhaps I'll drive to New Castle for a fill-up. Perhaps if our four gas stations would compare to New Castle prices, this writer might give 100 percent support towards our dying town.
