I wonder if you could do an artlcle on why Corbin gas prices are now higher at exit 29. For years this was the cheapest gas around. Now all of a sudden exit 25 is usually a lot cheaper. London was always a lot higher and now they're about even. Is their some sort of conspiracy. Please check on this. Thank you.
