Compare Casey's With Casey's
On July 18 the Casey's in Port Byron sells gasoline for $2.79 per gallon with very few customers. Directly across the river in LeClaire Casey's sells gasoline for $2.44 per gallon, A DIFFERENCE OF 35 CENTS PER GALLON!!! The LeClaire Casey's has cars lined up at the pumps,MANY WITH ILLINOIS LICENSE PLATES!!! Many Illinois motorists will also shop or dine while in LeClaire supporting Iowa retailers and paying Iowa motor fuel and sales taxes. Illinois needs tax revenue to balance its budget and the best way to get added tax revenue is to make Illinois prices and taxes competitive with our neighboring states.
