The price of a gallon of gasoline in Kentucky can be $2.05 one day, and the next day it rises to $2.39 even though crude-oil production increases and prices continue to decrease. When it does decrease it is only 1 cents to 2 cents at a time, until the next big jump in price.
I live in Florida part of the year, and gas prices there are always 25 cents to 35 cents cheaper year round. It has nothing to do with gas taxes since both states have similar taxes. It is also the same scenario in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and most of states surrounding Kentucky.
Many of my friends and I have asked the last two Kentucky attorneys general to investigate, but none of us has received the courtesy of a reply.
