The things that I already know about gas prices that they prices have gone up. Gas station doesn’t make that much profit on a gallon of gas. When gas raises the profits decreases so they can stay into business. When you pay for gas you are revealing paying taxes. Only a low percentage is actually for gas. The other part is split up and goes to government, and federal government. Gas companies do not make up gas prices. The federal, state, and local governments decide what his fair share of the cost of driving is. Just because gas is rising doesn’t mean there is a shortage. By next year gas is going to be close or over $5.00 a gallon.
I need to learn more about gas prices because I need more information on what the real reason is for the high prices. What countries supply us with oil, and are they having problems with it? If anything happens to the source giving us oil, will we be oil-less? What is the number one country supplying us with oil? Why can’t gas prices go lower? If we lower gas prices, what will the effects be on the economy? How can we positively affect the subject? All of these questions can help my research paper. Gas prices are an important topic to everyone now a day. If I can supply answers to people that are clueless to the topic, it may open up some eyes. Hopefully we can think of ways to reverse the gas prices, if possible.
