Rising Gas Prices Hurting Local Meth Dealer

(Toledo, OH) Gas prices topping $3.25 a gallon for unleaded gasoline are causing profits to drop for many small businesses in Northwest Ohio. Among the victims of the rising gas prices is local methamphetamine dealer Paul "DeeDee" Jeffords.

"When the gas prices go up, meth-heads aren't getting stoned as much and my business goes down," he noted. "That, plus a ten-mile trip to deliver a $20 late night fix to a regular customer just ain't as profitable as it once was."

Jeffords said that the spike in oil prices hurts his business in more ways than just delivery costs.

"Oil price hikes affects everything: from the retail price of the meth itself, to the production costs of supplies and packaging, much of which is made from petroleum-based products," he said. "Plus, it takes a lot of gas or kerosene to run a large scale meth lab, like what I got out in my garage. Pretty soon a $10 rock's gonna be, like, $15 or something."

Jeffords added that his customers are demonstrating resistance to inflationary pressures.

"Addicts got to understand that, as retail prices rise, it's not the local dealer that's causing the inflation," he said. "Inflation just keeps getting passed from the top down to the end user. That, plus they need to know that it is way uncool to be pilfering CDs and shit out of the dope man's car behind his back, especially after he drove across town in rush hour traffic to be bringing your ass some meth. Some shit is just wrong, you know?"
