Maine gas prices cross $4 per gallon mark

AUGUSTA (AP) — The average cost of a gallon of gas in Maine has crossed the $4 threshold.

Price-monitoring website reports Monday that the average retail cost rose nearly four cents per gallon in the past week to $4.01.

The national average rose just over two cents in the past week to an average of $3.86 per gallon.

Current prices are now 31 cents per gallon more than at the same time last year and 19 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

Why can't you tell us why!

If we are so much higher than the national average, is that normal or is something at play here? Why don't the reporters for the Sun Journal do any type of investigating or at least interviewing local gas distributors to find out why we are so high compared to national averages?

I'm interested in whether

I'm interested in whether anyone around Lewiston / Auburn is interested in talking about looking into forming a small bio diesel collective and purchasing our own processor similar (though possibly larger) to Northern Tools processor or if there is such a co-op how to join.
