Texoma gas prices

Sherman, TX -- Officials say there's no end in sight to the spike in gasoline prices, and Texoma is no exception.

A Triple A Texas survey shows regular self-serve is averaging $3.33 per gallon across Texas.

In Oklahoma, it's not much better, self-serve regular is now averaging $3.30 per gallon. But both sides of the Red River are still lower than the national average, which is $3.41.

A spokesperson with Triple A Oklahoma says it's hard to believe, but the national average could rise another 55 cents by this summer.

    We have all been spoiled by the rediculously low gas prices over the past decade. If anyone on here knows anything about what it takes to take crude from the bottom of an ocean floor or any other subsurface formation and convert it into a usable fuel you would be amazed. Once you understand all of the aspects involved you would see that 4.00/gallon is pretty damn cheap. Hell, you can take tap water and put it into a fancy plastic bottle and sell it for more than what gas costs. Think about that next time you are sitting in traffic furious about gas prices and sipping on your bottle of Desani water.

    To Anonymous - ever heard of DART? Dallas has a massive mass transit bus system that could be utilized. It works for the East Coast, why not here? To Ralph - increase taxes? In what way? The railroads aren't public property - use the existing gas tax for something constructive - like incentive funding to the railroad companies for training and hiring (helps with a problem we seem to be having with unemployment), get big business involved (shipping at lower costs, reduction of prices to consumers), get people involved (save gas, save wear and tear on your car, a less stressful mode of getting to work, reduced absentees due to car failures, reduce congestion on the highways, network with fellow workers, reduced pollution), and the list just keeps getting longer. Chris - I'd be interested in hearing what those individuals have to say, as well.

    most of you couldnt tell your head from your a$$. The weak dollar is causing high gas prices, stemming from a weak economy, stemming from nefarious and risky lending in a housing market that is on the decline because of the credit crunch. Deficit spending is out of control. We need the war to end. No matter if your democrat, republican, independent, green party, or f#cking bull moose, pull the head out and kick that ingnorant bastard out of the white house. Furthermore, we all got here on the backs of immigrants, this country has long prospered from the use of immigrant work, i.e. chinese building the railroad. It needs to be done legally, but you people sound like neo-con racists who have swallowed the "fear bait" hook line and sinker. We are bigger than this. America is a lot bigger.

    Ok guys, most of you have hit the nail on the head. But I too would like to add my 2 cents worth. As was previously said, take a lesson from Europe, they have been paying a lot more than $4. a gallon for years. Their solution? Ride a bike and take public transportation. And to the person who was blaming the administration for gas prices. In a capitalistic economy, government has NOTHING to do with private profit. Shame on you for not paying attention in economics class. And to the Mexicans, if you are legal great, if you are not, you are stealing from all of us. What we (taxpayers in the U.S.) spend on illegals is the biggest part of our national budget. Not the war, but illegals and the problems THEY cause. Look at their country, it is raped and pillaged,and they do the same over here.Go to Sherman High School.The Mexican gang problem has now caused us to have four Sherman police officers in the halls. Not the white kids, not the black, but the Mexicans.Wake up to the real issues

    jose lopez, you have to be non-hispanic because your ENGLISH is too good. Unfortunately, there are too many that do enter illegally and within 10 years, Hispanics will make up about 45% of the population. Whether they work hard or not, they are here illegally. If they are that important to our society, then why don't they work for the oil industry and build some new refineries which in turn will help reduce the cost of gas. Better yet, why don't they continue to vote for the DEMs who put the EPA regulations into place (under the Clinton administration)that make prices so outrageous?

    Thank you Casi, I was wondering if or when someone would answer my question. You are correct. The rails are in place. The parking lots are in place. Look at the north lot of TI Sherman mostly empty. 20 acres in Allen right beside the rail for sell. And that rail leads into the Dallas Metro. The rail is there why do we refuse to use it. I would like to hear from Ralph Hall,Bill Magers,Chip Adami, Joe Smith, Curt Hughes,Terrence R. Steele,Cary Wacker,Willie Steele,John Cornyn,Kay Bailey Hutchison, Craig Estes, Larry Phillips. Please post an answer. I would enjoy saving 25000 miles a year on my car. 1000 gallons of gas or $3500.

    Casi and Chris...To revive mass transit would mean more taxes. That would be part of a "socilalist agenda" that some of those who post here refer to. How about this, let's rebuild our mass transit system, and just charge it to our grandchildren. That's what conservatives refer to these days as being fiscally responsible. To Anonymous, had the oild companies only made $1 per barrel instead of the $3 you claim, I suppose they'd be filing for bankruptcy while at the sane time giving their CEO's bonuses. To those who think there is nothing we can do, keep bending over, Exxon etc. will be happy to oblige. Sheep!

    Casi, you can't effectively have train service to Dallas because Dallas is a BIG city and people have final destinations all over the city. How would they get to where they need to be... taxis? There aren't enough!

    I was born here since my parents entered illegally. I am going to bring all my family from Mexico here to the US just so they can have a better life. . . .they wont complain about gas prices. Get ready to see alot more of "us" in your neighborhood. I know this burns you racist folks more than anything; people who work hard to make a better life for themself and their family.

    Yay, Chris...the only intelligent post on this site. We've got the rail infrastructure in place, why don't we put some people to work making repairs, etc. and reinstitute trains. Get people to work, get goods shipped by mass transit - it's got to be cheaper than one person per vehicle and 18-wheelers.
