Why we're paying $3.60 for gas



Northbound Interstate 75 near Saginaw was jammed Friday night before Memorial Day. Hundreds of thousands of people decided to purchase gasoline and hit the road.
We're not willing to give up the freedom of the road, and the demand for fuel is almost as high as it's ever been.
We might cut back other places, reduce our shopping at Macy's and shop more at Wal-Mart, or even cut back on what we buy at Wal-Mart, but it's not going to stop us from driving.
The people who sell the fuel will charge what the traffic (literally) will bear. We can whine, yell, scream, but as long as we want the product, and we're willing to pay for it, nothing will change.

we need to shop less at wal-mart. and drive less. try walking to the local drug store and grocery store.

yeah, it's hard for those in out county locales. but, they should still refrain from the wal-mart.
