ACTION LINE: How does Hill’s Exchange Express set gas prices?

October 8, 2015

Q: I am writing this concerning the gasoline prices at the Base Exchange (BX). I perceive a pattern of raising prices just prior to paydays. Last Wednesday before the civilian payday, while the media are announcing lower oil prices, gas at the BX rose 16 cents a gallon (mid-grade) between 2:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. I do not believe there was a new delivery that late in the day. At every other base I have been, the prices are lower than the local prices except Hill. It doesn’t seem right. Our military should be getting a break.

ACTION LINE: West Gate road markings could be better

September 24, 2015

Q:The outbound traffic markings on the road immediately outside the West Gate are not painted appropriately. In my opinion, this is a safety hazard and has nearly caused an accident on more than one occasion as people rush to get off base.

ACTION LINE: Closures associated with AFMC Family Days

September 17, 2015

We received a number of comments regarding the closure of the West Gate on Sept. 4, the Friday leading up to the Labor Day weekend. 

I want to sincerely apologize as we did not properly inform the base populace of the closure. Although gate hours are posted at the West Gate entrance, I agree that we should have done a better job advertising the fact that the West Gate is not open on AFMC Family Days. 

We are internally reviewing closure and service reduction rules of engagement for various functions related to these events.
