Retail gasoline prices are roughly fifty cents a gallon higher than they were a year ago The American Petroleum Institute has said that the surge in retail gasoline prices can be justified by a dramatic rise in the cost of crude oil as dealers foresee disruptions in supply in the event of war Crude oil prices were at thirty-five dollars a barrel up thirty five percent in the past four months This increase can also be blamed to supply disruptions from Venezuela because of a national strike Energy experst are expecting gasoline prices to go even higher as spring gets underway and encourages drivers to travel more increasing the oil demand during wartime On the other hand the increased gas prices will also make Americans consolidate their afternoon errands and not do as much driving If everyone makes fuel efficiency a priority and not drive their SUVs as often it should help to keep gas prices from becoming too outrageous In many ways the increased gas prices could be a good lesson for Americans This time of increased gasoline prices could condition many Americans to be more prudent about how often and what kind of vehicle they drive The price boom has raised suspicions of potential price-gouging and lawmakers are already pushing for stringent monitoring of pump prices to ensure fair pricing Disruption in supply from Iraq could justify the sometimes obscence prices like El Cajon CA which was charging 319 per gallon of regular unleaded However more fortunate retailers whose suppliers may not be experiencing price increases could increase their prices for their own benefit There need to be people watching the gas prices just as we Americans should all be watching out for each other and supporting one another in a time of war
