Donna From Goldsboro wants us to keep asking why gas prices are going up while oil prices are going down. What do you think? Comment on Donna's blog or write your own and send it to us at witn@witn.com

Why are gas prices so high when the price of oil is so low? I think you should constantly stay on this. The local oil companies are gouging us, taking advantage of us. There is absolutely no reason why we should be paying $1.90 for gas when oil is less than $35 per barrel. Come on, help the consumers out here, stay on this story, single out the local oil companies.

    It's simple folks, gas prices are high because we have no descent gov. Maybe their pockets aren't full yet with gas companies money.

    I agree , why do we have to pay so much for a gal. of gas ? I've watched a local station raise their price 3 and 4 times a week and the price of a barrel stays the same.How much money does the oil companies need ? Or should I say how much do the oil company executives need ? Why can't the government step in and say enough is enough ! The oil companies should have to sell gasoline for $1.00 a gallon for the next ten years to make up for the gouging they have done to the American people .

    I believe right now the gas is at a price that we can live with. Before 2005 gas was up about 1.40. This would be a nice price but if we go back to 90 cents a gallon people will go out buy gas guzzlers. This would put us right back where we started.

    I frequently have to travel and it amazes me to see the difference in gas prices from town to town. In my area, there could be 10 to 30 cents difference in price from town to town at stations owned by the same company. Barrell prices are back down to where pump prices were under $1.50/gal several years ago. Diesel is outragous, even at the lower prices now. What will be their next excuse.
