  • Rising Gas Prices By Mitch Simon
    • The use of solar energy has not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun. 
    • ~Ralph Nader
  • So How did this all Start?
    • 1978-1981
    • Gas prices were steady until Ronald Regan stepped into office and ended federal regulation of oil companies.
    • Then: about $1.50/gallon
    • Now: about $4.00/gallon

    • Purchasing vehicles that receive a high rate of miles per gallon
    • Using other means of transportation
    • Not driving as much and only driving when you need to
  • So What should the new administration do?
    • There is very little they can do but some ways could include:
    • Reducing or eliminating their federal tax
    • Regulating the oil companies and how much they charge for a gallon of gas
    • Drilling in available areas with a large amount of oil
  • What's in for the future?
    • If Something is Done:
    • Newer Modes of Transportation
    • Alternative Fuels that the everyday person could afford
    • Gas Prices would be decrease and remain at a reasonable price
    • If trends continue without change:
    • Gas Prices will hit higher record prices
    • The Economy will suffer
    • Citizens will be forced to rethink their options
  • What Do I Think?
    • I Strongly believe that the following is definitely needed:
    • Regulation of Oil
    • Possible alternative fuels that aren't expensive
    • To Not get involved with Iran
    • Drilling in Accessible areas
