Andrea Whitt brought lot of laughter into our homes by her inadvertently reducing the price of gasoline at the Hy-Miler, Fremont, and having the backbone to go back to the station and try to correct her error. You showed a lot of integrity in your decision to return.

A big "thumbs down" to District Petroleum on the action they chose to take. It's not Andrea's fault the oil refining industry did not look ahead to reinvest in their own businesses so we would not be faced with high prices at the pump. The American auto industry (will we have one much longer?) is as much to blame. How long has the discussion been going on about fuel alternatives; as long as I can remember in my lifetime.

I think now is the time for that "protest at the pump" to begin and I'd like to suggest you think of the area Hy-Milers. This would show them how much more money they would have lost that Andrea's unintentional mistake did to their profit and loss statement.

Andrea is getting married shortly and said that her loss of this job puts a large crimp on her wedding plans ... so all you people who saved money "at the pump" on Wednesday ought to consider sending her a donation -- I didn't get to buy the "cheap gasoline," but it was worth the chuckle of having a laugh at a gasoline distributor. I will be sending a donation! Anyone having an opening in your business for an honest employee, give Andrea a call.
