    • Current Event Nine Gas Prices http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/03/15/174393025/gasoline-pushed- consumer-prices-up-sharply-in-february ! Gas prices have jumped up yet again. From January to February consumer prices jumped up 0.7 due to 9.1% increase in gasoline prices. Gas prices are responsible for a majority of the overall increase. Economists are saying that the jump from January to February is the largest month to month increase since 2009. While many blame upward pressure on inflation the federal reserve wonʼt acknowledge the situation until next week when there is a meeting concerning the economy. ! Iʼm tired of climbing gas prices. So is everyone else. Going around Facebook for awhile was a picture wanting people to all protest by not buying any gas one day in April to force Gas Stations to lower prices. I am sure a lot of people will protest that havenʼt already. It is getting ridiculous but at the same time what can we really do? If people do pull together to do the protest in April it will certainly hit the economy hard. If everyone genuinely didnʼt buy gas across the nation, gas companies would lose a ton of money nationwide. I doubt this will happen, but I hope it does. At least then a message would truly be sent that people are fed up. ! Itʼs time for a change. I donʼt think anything will be fixed anytime soon though. Gas prices are going to get much worse before things start to get better. But if people do start protesting, it probably will just screw over our economy. Our economy is already not doing to hot with the recession and no jobs. Things are slowly picking up here and there though. I actually work in real estate and the housing market has picked up tremendously in the past year alone. So I think our economy is on the right path to slowly recovering, it just takes time. But high gas prices are certainly a hiccup in the road.Tara Pawlyk Tuesday, March 19, 2013 7:57:53 AM ET 04:0c:ce:d3:10:88
