OFFICIALS NEED TO EXAMINE WHY GAS PRICES ARE SO HIGH

When the price of a barrel of light crude oil was $45, we were paying about $1.70 for a gallon of gas. When it sold for $58 a barrel, we started to pay $2.30 a gallon on average. Now that the price is down to $50 a barrel, why are we still paying $2.30 a gallon? It's probably because we are being price gouged. I think New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer as well as newly appointed U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales should investigate.
