WTF Gas Prices?

Why are the gas prices so high? Over 18 million barrels of oil where used last year. At the current gas prices, national average of $3.40 per gallon is $1.29 more than this time last year. So, Is the so called "effort" to tap into reserve oil B.S.? Well, we hope not, because gas prices are out of control. Community leaders and citizens really need to think about and communicate ideas on possible solutions.
