The simple fact is the reason gas prices won't go down much is the feds and the states would lose millions in taxes.

folks whined about the price of gas when it was 19.9 cents..... some of them nearly died when it hit one dollar...... it is fine for the govt to make more money per gallon than the oil companies, unless you own stock in oil companies, you hate them worse than our corrupt govt. when gas really gets too expensive technology will take over, so if you really hate buying gas, stay home on weekends, and don't drive to kc or Topeka

$3.85 in Los Angeles. Anyone in Lawrence want to trade? Our State gas tax just went up 3.5 cents a gallon because we aren't buying enough gasoline. There is plenty of oil in the ground, but we can't drill much of it, because the same legislators who raised the tax, won't allow it.

On Wednesday, I suggested to LJW that they might see a reduction in clicks due to the annoying surveys on their website. My comment got disapeardedededed. I am just trying to give some honest feedback here. I have always enjoyed reading this site, but the LJW is not the only source of news in NE Kansas. The most user friendly sites are going to be the ones that get the most re-clicks.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. The reason gasoline prices are where they are is a direct result of remaning weakness of the U.S. economy, high unemployment, minimal growth in GDP, high debt, quantitative easing, and no prospect of it changing anytime soon. All of this weakens the value of the dollar which means it takes more dollars to buy gasoline. This is the new norm courtesy of the Obama administration. Last one to leave, turn out the lights.

We have been screwed for so long, we welcome a drop in price, still over $ 3 a gallon as something to be happy about. I guess we can see the oil company's plan working. They are making millions off of the monopoly on a product we must have, and when they lower it a few cents, yet still over $ 3 a gallon, we are thankful for that?

Sorry to say it to you the wrong way. I guess saying world leaders mislead you. World leaders are put into office to convey and protect the interests of those who put them there. Should have said The World Bank and there shareholders. Thanks for the info, just inforces what we are up against. You do know it is all about the dollar or should I say Oil Dollars. What would happen if oil was not traded on the open market in dollars?

Gas prices are now planned and selected by our world leaders. Just pay as you go. We also have options with the fuel that we choose. Fuel that is subsidized from our taxes which provides lower prices and lower fuel miles or pay for oil not from locals. Why the heck are we still dependent on foreign oil. Oil just shot up because some of our oil is from Egypt. Please! We have so many resourses within our land and waters. So, how many rigs are in the gulf? To me that is our oil. And I will fight for it. We are so getting screwed. This is the same mindset that has allowed the City of Lawrence to fund the FritZel fund to suck off our nipple. Our local government acts just like our federal governement. Corupt liers and theives. Don't think they will not take your guns away, they will in due time. I do not like where our rights and lives are heading.
