Somerset exploring selling gasoline to the public

SOMERSET, Ky. (WKYT) -The Somerset city council receives a lot of complaints about high gas prices and now they say, they may finally be able to do something about it.

“If these local distributors want to charge $5 or $10 a gallon let them do it, but we’ll have a choice,” said John Minton, who serves on the Somerset City Council.

“Seems like every holiday or event in town, everyone will go gas up,” he said.

Because he says they know pain at the pump is a certainty.

The city is already in the natural gas business and plans to use their existing filling station on Chappell Dairy Rd. to sell gasoline.

“My personal opinion, if we can break even, the people deserve it,” he said.

There’s still a lot of work to be done, but Minton says they may be able to start selling gas by this summer.
