Fuel Price Controversy Continues

Starport services across the sector are defending their fuel pricing strategy amid claims of price fixing.

A representative for Tranquillity Stops, 'the Galaxy's favourite services', angrily refuted claims of impropriety.

The spokeswoman told us:
"Whilst pilots can fit a fuel scoop to their vessel and attempt to skim the surface of stars to refill their tank for free, anyone with an ounce of sense will understand the dangers of such an activity."
She added that, measured against the potential thermal damage and risk of interdiction, fuel prices were actually "quite reasonable".
