Gas prices were expected to drop to almost $3 dollars a gallon by this month, but it doesn't look like that will happen. Amarillo gas prices are among the highest in the state, and there doesn't seem to be any relief in sight at the pump.

Rising crude prices have prompted bump in gas prices averaging 4 cents across the nation. This puts the nationwide average at $3.58 per gallon. The lowest prices in Texas are in El Paso and Houston at $3.41 a gallon while Amarillo sits at the highest in the state at $3.48 a gallon (even though I paid 3.59 at Toot n' Totum this morning).

Gas prices fluctuate violently these days and it looks like the days of under $3.00 a gallon of gas are over. I guess that means we all need to buy green cars and hop on the presidential agenda bandwagon.

I find it almost amusing that the liberal (and presidential) agenda tells people to buy electric or hybrid vehicles to help with the strain gas prices are causing. Buying a tank of gas at $3.48 a gallon is putting us in the poor house. How can we really be expected to go buy a brand new hybrid vehicle. But, I guess that is the liberal way right? "We're broke, we need to spend more money".
