Gas Prices Continue to Rise

After further investigation of the sky rocketing price of fuel in the area, it appears that refineries are only operating at 79% of capacity which is below normal levels for this time of the year. According to local sources, prices at the terminals, where local stations pick up fuel, the price has gone up about 40 to 45 cents per gallon in six days. It appears that the major oil companies could be inflating prices by controlling supplies. There have been no reports of shortages of fuel, but prices continue to rise. Citizens are encouraged to contact national elected officials such as Senators Deb Fischer and Mike Johans to ask for some federal involvement. Phone number for Deb Fischer is 202-224-6551. Senator Johanns number is 202-224-4224. Both can also be reached by email through their web sites . Congressman Adrian Smith’s contact number is 202-225-6435.
