We've all seen the rising prices at the gas pump, but today they're at a new national record.

Average prices are now almost $3.23 a gallon.

In the Augusta area, prices are 15 to 20 cents lower.

There's another new record, for crude oil--it was over $109 a barrel in New York this morning.

    I dont think prices are too high and many others people obviously do also. I make that statement based on seeing people totally disregarding prices they pay at pumps. Next time you pass an intersection with more than one station notice the difference in prices between stations, and ask yourself, why don"t people go out of their way to go to the cheapest... That is the only way prices will go down and we all should support only those stations with lower prices, even if it is an inconvenience for us. But, I guess I'll still see people going to stations that are more expensive, because they or their daddy always did business there and it is only a few cents more...
