• Permanently setting the price of gasoline would be widely beneficial for keeping a stable economy,

    Setting the price of gasoline would be beneficial because then the government would not have to raise the price of minimum wage and thus, inflation would not affect gas. If you raise minimum wage, that means all of the other things, We, as Americans buy or use on a daily basis would increase in price. Living costs would increase, food, clothing, gas, and everything in that nature would increase and we would still be in debt, just as we are now. Setting gasoline prices would ensure that more gas would be sold and keep other prices down for the necessities that we need. Gas prices rise and fall all throughout the week, but if you lower the price to around 2.45, many more people may fill up more times throughout the week, keeping companies in business, and gathering income for the country, helping us pay off some of our national debt gradually.

  • Set gas prices

    I definitely think that the price of gas should be set. I also think that it will make it a little more fair to those who make a lower income then others. I believe that even though the prices fluxuate the oil companies still need to make money so setting a decent price is fair to all

  • The government should regulate gas prices.

    Gas is become one of the biggest struggles for average living people. The government shouldn't be taking even more money out of our pockets for wanting to get one place to another. Yes, the cost for gas shouldn't be really cheap either because the gas companies do need to make some money. But I believe that they are starting to go over the top with these prices and it's not fair to the people who are not making that great of an income.

  • Regulate gas prices

    Yes, the gas prices at gas stations should regulate the gas prices. Becuase when my family drives and has to put in gas, gas prices should be cheaper. Nowadays gas prices are becoming more expensive. Therefore, the government should cut the prices down on gas everywhere in the United States.

  • Regulate gas prices

    Yes, the gas prices at gas stations should regulate the gas prices. Becuase when my family drives and has to put in gas, gas prices should be cheaper. Nowadays gas prices are becoming more expensive. Therefore, the government should cut the prices down on gas everywhere in the United States.

  • Yes & No

    Yes they Should Regulate prices so Station cannot over charge customers,
    But they should not as they currently do Regulate them so they can't sell it for cheap. (as it is now if a servo buys it for 80c/L & wants to sell it for $1.00/L they are not allowed to There is a minimum Price they are allowed to sell it for.
    (so the less greedy & more Generous sellers can't do anything)

  • Regulation not control

    I dont believe the government should control gas prices, but setting a minimum and maximum on the quantity supplied to price ratio would definitely be a plus if it were to reduce the cost. There are too many families suffering because of these large oil companies deciding to suddenly skyrocket prices when they are already making a large profit off of each gallon. With this system there could still be competition between companies while keeping prices affordable to this countries citizens.

  • I believe that gas prices should be set!

    In the many years gas prices have gone up and down and all around. Many people complain about the flux of it. If the government set the price at a reasonable, fair , and equal value then the economy would be fine. It cant be to high or to low. That way the people win and the industries win. Sure some people will not like the idea but to better the world our children live in. I truly believe that this should be done.

  • We should be happy

    Honestly no one needs to scrap together change just to buy gas. My gas tank needs 40 dollars a week. Imagine if you had kids and need to take one of them to the hospital. Your broke you only have your medical card to cover the child's medical care and 10 dollars. The pumps say gas is 3 dollars a gallon. You will only get 3 gallons. It doesn't help you to save your child so you have to watch them suffer. We need gas prices at a rate were the people selling make a profit yet, we also get what we need. So if we regulate the price to 1.50 dollars that would be great cause them I can buy 40 gallons without wondering how im gonna get to work.

  • Help the people!!

    Yes, why should the CEO's of the gas company's make millions and millions of dollars and the average American struggle to pay for gas? And the price of gas should not go up just because the wind blows hard on oil platforms. The price of gas is not a red or blue state issue, because this would help all Americans that are not rich.

  • Real Price of Gas for all to see.

    The government should NOT regulate the price of gas because people honestly need to know that A: Gas is going to run out. B: It is getting more expensive as there is less and less of it.

    In Europe, there is no gas subsidies, and people are much more eco-friendly there because gas costs so much. I don't see why people in the city need to drive a fricken Hummer or Escalade when a small FUEL EFFICIENT car will work just fine. When gas is $8 a gallon because that is the real price of it, maybe people will begin to actually act sensibly.

  • No govt regulation

    No the govt should not regulate the gas prices Because if they do then they can make it as high as they want which In turn will make it so that no one can afforded to drive. So in conclusion the govt should not be involved in the price of gas .

  • Just use moonshine

    We should just use moonshine as a fuel source for are vehicles. We can make it our self an it flammable enough to burn in ur cars.U will have to some gas because shine will burn hot enought melt a hole in your cylinder . I found that out as a buddy of mine was rebuilding the motor in his truck

  • Enough is enough

    Government controls enough and they have trouble with it as it is. If they had control over gas prices they could rocket so high that no one could afford it. Also they take forever to make a final decision on anything, so if there was a problem who knows how long it would be before they took action.

  • The government should not regulate prices

    The government should not keep raising the gas prices sky high. People might not have the money to buy the gas. We need the gas to get around, but we also need money for other important things. So if gas prices continue to increase people wouldn't have the money to go and buy groceries, clothes, and other daily needs.

  • There's no need.

    Out of the three articles I've read all of them talked of supply and demand. If demand for oil is high, mentioned in one of the articles, as in summer when everyone is traveling , then so will prices. If foreign oil suppliers raise prices, prices will go up. If it is hurricane season, prices will to go up and so on. Not everything needs to be regulated, it is my opinion that if there isn't monopolization or,something that goes against out economic system, there's no need for regulation.


  • Fluctuating Prices Helps.

    The government does not need to regulate gas prices because our economy operates on supply and demand, in which if the price is too high demand lowers causing the price to lower therefore making it fair. If the government regulates prices then the inefficiencies of government could end up with even higher prices in the end.

  • We don't need more Bureaucracy

    Simply put our government likes to move slowly as they are a Representative republic but that is another debate entirely. When the government creates a new branch or organization to often it is far too large for it to be useful take for instance the EPA the yearly spikes in gas prices are the fault of the EPA and really to we need another IRS.

  • Fluctuating Gas Prices Promote Growth

    If the government regulates the price of gas, than the economy would suffer because there would be no competition and companies would go out of business. Having a non-monopolistic market helps promote growth in the economy. That is why the government should not regulate the price of gas. Gas is also a precious material, that means if the government set a price that was too low, there would be a gas shortage.

  • Too much Government control

    The government already controls enough. If we let them control the gas, there is no accountability. They could raise it sky high and we could do nothing. It would leave the people at the mercy of the government about gas. It would not be affordable any longer by the common man.
