Gas Tax at Work

CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — The twice-monthly Lundberg Survey has found the price of regular gasoline has risen about nine cents a gallon over three weeks to $3.08.  …

Lundberg says the highest gas price in the country was recorded in Chicago at $3.35 a gallon. The low, $2.73, was in Salt Lake City, Utah.The survey was completed Friday.

Highest gas prices in the nation.  Ridiculous.

Since everything we buy: food, clothes, cars, TV’s, etc., all travel by truck at some point in time, high gas prices cause inflation.  So not only do you personally pay more for the gas you use, but you pay more for everything that you use.

This is a real problem that we have to get under control if we are to not only survive but thrive.
