FSM's (relatively) great gas prices about to rise

Guam motorists groaning at the current gas price on island which is now over $4.50 per gallon, likely are aware that others in the region, the CNMI for one, pay more. But it seems the Vital FSM Petroleum Corporation has been doing a pretty good job of holding back on price increases in the Federated States.

Now, as it tells customers prices increases are coming, Vital is bragging about its efforts, saying in a press release that it has consistently maintained lower fuel prices in the FSM when compared to other locations in the region, such as Guam, the Marshall Islands and Palau, despite the increasing costs of importing fuel products.
