NASH: The price we pay for gas


There is not a lot that the average American can do about the price of gasoline. We are forced to pay whatever the neighborhood station tells us that we have to. Over the last few years, I have tried to do my best to cut back on my consumption, but I have not noticed much of a change based on my behavior alone. 

Some people buy their gasoline from the same place every time they fill up. Others fill up wherever they find the best price. I usually buy mine in the most convenient spot, with the lowest price. 

I do not endorse the gasoline at the Swifty on the corner of Spring and Silver Streets in New Albany. I do not know whether their gas is any better or worse than any other gasoline in town. 

I do know that for more than three weeks, they have not changed their price for a gallon of gasoline, while others have gone up and down nearly on a daily basis.
