Take action to reduce gas prices

May 24, 2007

The current rise in gas prices has everyone concerned. A lot of people are worried about how expensive the gas will be during summer. The highest record for gas was crushed two days ago after peaking above $3.20 per gallon. Predictions for summer are somewhere from $4 to $5 per gallon. I believe that this is an extremely important issue directly affecting many families.

There are many ways that this problem can be altered, if only for a little while. I heard that May 15 there was supposed to be a strike on buying gas so that prices would go down, because of the way supply and demand works. Of course, as I rode by the gas station in my friend's car, I couldn't help but notice the usual line of cars getting re-fueled.

I believe that we should start researching more efficient and long-lasting alternative fuels for the future. If at all possible, it would be wise to have another -- more effective -- gas strike sometime this summer.
