We’re all wondering, “Why is gas so high?”
Well, it’s a complicated answer. But here are some of the major reasons:
1. The price of oil has gone up significantly since early 2015, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to go down anytime soon.
2. There’s a shortage of supply in many areas due to low oil production by countries like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela—and international tensions are making things worse for those countries.
3. Gas stations usually only have one supplier for their fuel, so when that supplier raises its prices, they all do too!
So, you’ve probably noticed that the price of gas has been steadily rising. We wanted to take a moment to explain why that’s happening and what we can do about it.
The main reason for the recent spike in prices is the increasing cost of crude oil—the raw material that’s used to make gasoline. This is because demand for crude oil is on the rise as countries like China and India continue to develop economically and build up their infrastructure.
It’s also important to note that our country’s own demand for crude oil is increasing. The United States currently uses 19 million barrels of oil per day (which is more than any other country by far). That number continues to grow every year as more people move here from other countries and start new families, while businesses continue growing as well.

So what can we do about gas prices? Well, unfortunately there isn’t much we can do right now—but there are some things you can try! For example, you could look into alternative energy sources such as solar power or wind turbines at home (or even just driving less!). You could also try getting involved with local organizations that promote environmentally conscious practices in your community or statewide laws like California’s SB 1 which requires utilities.
Gas prices are high because of the cost of oil, which is the main ingredient in gasoline. The US uses a lot of oil, and so when the price of oil goes up, it causes gas prices to go up as well.
