Editorial: Gasoline Sales To Tribal Members And Spouses

Feather News

The gas station on the Mohegan Reservation should allow gas to be sold at wholesale prices to both Tribal members and their spouses. After all, if gasoline is sold at a wholesale price it wouldn't cost the Tribe anything to provide it to Tribal families. If the Tribal member is traveling or otherwise outside of the area, the spouse should be allowed to buy the gasoline at wholesale prices.

For that matter, other products, including food, could also be distributed to Tribal members at the wholesale prices obtained through the casino's bulk purchasing leverage. If it won't cost anything minimally more to do this, then why not?

After all, the Tribal member is the most important population of our Tribal Nation.
