Letter: Gas price too high

May 3, 2014 

How much are you spending on gas a month? The price of gas has been at an all-time high within the past 10 years, and I think it's time we put a stop to it. With fuel consumption declining, the prices should be going down.

My family travels a lot more when gas prices are low. With lower gas price, the government would still make tons of money because people would be buying more gas because it would be cheaper.

The government keeps ripping us off by making us pay more and more each day; not only for gas, but for any product, and I think it's time that they start to lower their prices. Gas is used every day all over the world and by lowering fuel; it will make people happier and allow them to do more traveling and activities outside of their normal area.
