How high can they go?


Gas prices have increased from 10 to 14 cents per gallon in the last week. Analysts predict that the price will see a small — perhaps 5 percent — decrease after Labor Day but will continue to rise topping out at about $3 per gallon by year’s end. Prices are predicted to continue to rise in 2006 with a leveling at $4 per gallon. Reasons for the increase are the threat of sanctions against Iran, higher demand from other countries such as China and too few refineries. What do you think about high gas prices? Is that hybrid car looking more attractive? Have you given thought to downsizing to a motorcycle?

Are you thinking of selling your boat or other recreational vehicle due to operating cost? Have you tried public transportation? Are your children heading to the school bus instead of the family mini van? Should the state repeal its gasoline taxes? Is the American consumer being ripped off at the pump? Do you think that prices will continue to rise and equal the $5 to $6 per gallon price being paid in Europe? Or, do you just not care? Let us know, call presstalk at 671-TALK (8255).
