High Cost of Oil and Gas - Give us a break!
By Janelle Hamilton


December 09, 2006

I do know of people who are struggling to pay for oil and gas. People are talking about it but what can we do? Talk will not get us anything except the chance to express a little frustration, WHAT CAN WE DO TO CHANGE THIS? The crazy thing is, it costs me $306.00 for one hundred gallons of oil, it used to be @ $180.00. It would cost me $28.00 to fill my truck tank, it now costs me $44.00. I hear of other states paying $2.00+ for gas, why the heck are we paying so much? The old excuse "Freight costs more to Alaska" IS GETTING OLD! Someone do something!
