Gas Pains

Local gas businessman, Joe Mamo of Capitol Petroleum Group, will get to continue distributing gas as well as operate gas stations after the defeat of last night's Retail Service Station Amendment Act. Independent gas station operators have been pushing for a law that would prevent him from doing this since they say he has a near-monopoly and the arrangement pushes gas prices higher than they need to be. Mamo owns about two-thirds of the gas stations in the city. [TBD]
