Those who do not like the price increases, due to the gas industry coming here, would be equally dismayed if Williamsport become a more attractive tourist destination.

I am wondering if they had the prices on the menu before you ordered dinner? Most restaurants do. You should be happy you are able to afford to take a vacation. I have not had one in about 10 years. I do not understand the point of this letter.
