  Out of control gas prices?
 
We've all heard a lot about the rising gas prices lately... while I understand that gasoline prices have a profound effect on the daily lives of people outside of their cars, one has to ask: are prices really that high?

Yesterday I paid $2.09 for a gallon of regular unleaded gas. I'm in a region where our prices regularly exceed the national average by $.25 - .50. Fifteen years ago, when I was in high school, we paid about $.95/gallon. Given inflation and the historical prices of gas, are we really paying that much more today? Especially considering the incredible increase in average salaries since that time? Just throwing that out there...
