Gas Prices Hit Record High

Gas prices hit a record high in Lexington. Some stations are selling gas for as high as $3.19 a gallon this morning.

Prices have gone up more than 90 cents a gallon since January.

AAA says prices could go down by the end of summer, as refineries increase production. AAA expects prices to be at $2.75 by the end of the summer.

    I am right there with you Virgil. I recently traded my car in for a car that was more fuel efficient because of my commute to and from work 5 days a week. I loved my old car and miss it but felt I had to do something due to the rising gas prices. It is a sad world we are living in.

    Well I have had to buy a new vehicle just to cope with the high price of gas. It costed me 89 bucks more a month for the vehicle I would like to see a news story on people who have had to make the same sacrifice as me.

    What about free gas? Pay gas or no gas at all.... Wondering why the government and President keeping getting richer and richer. What I think that people should stop working and stay home. (If complaining about food.. GROW YOUR OWN GARDEN...THAT'S SIMPLE..) I think the oil companies is getting richer and richer even if we pay the gas even more than 3.00 a gallon.. If you complaining about the gas price then why not ride a bicycle or take a horse to work..

    While all these comments are good, they are not worth the paper they are written on. Everyone needs to write their State and National elected people, daily if need be, until they start to listen. LET'S MASS MAIL THESE PEOPLE. THIS IS AN ELECTION YEAR AND THEY HAVE TO LISTEN. Do a Google search and find who these people are if you don't know. Add their address to your FAVORITES list and use it.

    I have an outside sales job.I make eight dollars an hour plus a small commission on what I sell. I pay for my fuel.I drive nearly one thousand miles a week. I for one can not keep this up. Before long I will bring home ZERO...But the local oil company just keeps rolling those prices UP.This has to stop.I guess I will be working at a local fast food place..if anyone can afford to eat out..and yes, the government tells us that inflation is running at a low point.The people in Frankfort and D.C. need to get out in theREAL WORLD.

    I say we all stop buying gas once a week if we really want to get them where it hurts. One day a year isn't going to do anything. I say tap those kegs in Alaska and Antartica or we are going to find outselves in the middle of another great depression because high gas prices are affecting the prices of everything else and making it where no one can afford to live.

    Yes, these prices are to high. Since our elected leadeers say they are trying to reduce health care costs but they are not. If they would put a cap on how high gas prices can go then it would lower the costs of food , healtcare and everything else. If I were to run for president I would make this my number one priorty. I would set a limit of gas prices to $1.75-$2.00 per gallon. Raise taxes on the rich and lower taxes for the poor. Set limit on how much some people can make and give the rest to our education system dropping the costs of an education. all of this unfairness would be stopped.
