Rising gas prices have people in the mountains talking.
On Tuesday, United States Senator Mitch McConnell vocalized his concern about the problem.
Senator McConnell spoke on the senate floor about how the Obama administration has all but pushed for the increase in prices.
McConnell says when Obama ran for president, he wanted to gradually increase gas prices slowly so people did not feel the pinch as badly.
"So no one should be surprised at the fact that we're well on the road to European gas prices when the President and the two cabinet officials he chose to deal with the issue are all on record supporting them," said McConnell.
European gas prices are currently around eight dollars a gallon.
Experts say we should expect a continuing increase in prices in the weeks and months ahead.
