Gas Prices Soar


P.3


Thursday, April 15, 2004


Every car uses gas (Almost every car). That is why it is so expensive. With gas prices averaging $1.89 in the U.S. and $2.17 in California it is costing people a lot of money. The highest price in California for gas was just over $3.00; the lowest was $1.79 per gallon. Gas prices could still go up over $.40 more per gallon. When that happens it will cost an S.U.V. $90.00 every time it fuels up, and it will just burn it all away anyway Oil costs the U.S. $36.00 a barrel right now not including all of the other resources needed to make the gas. These barrels of oil are hard to find and are wanted by almost all countries that have automobiles. The countries that are producing oil are working as fast as they can to keep up with the demand; they are also getting a lot of money from the oil industry. The U.S. produces some oil but it is not close to enough. Every car uses gas (Almost every car). That is why it is so expensive.
