Gas Prices

Hello Mr. President,

I am unsure what you can do about about this but Michigan as it stands right now has the highest Gas prices amoung the other 49 States in the U.S. I feel something should be done about this, because the state of Michigan should not be one of the only ones with the highest gas prices at the pump when other states like FL has way lower prices at the pump. I am not sure who to really write about this but I just paid $22 dollars more then I ever paid for a full tank of gas and I think that is crazy when I would normally be paying any where between $40 and $50 dollars and now I am paying well over $70 dollars for gas, I feel that is right out crazy. Also with the reason news of the Gov of Michigan wanting to put more taxes on are gas which would make Michigan the highest taxed on gas in the nation. I don't know what to do here but I like many others have a limited income and putting $70 bucks or more in a gas tank then trying to buy other items is just right out crazy. I hope you or somebody can do something to stop Michigan Gov from adding more taxes at the pump and also do something to look into making prices more fair, really one state like FL having gas for $3.29 or less and others having that price or lower is right out crazy when gas here in Michigan is nearly $4 dollars. In all honestly gas prices should be the same price no matter what state you live in the U.S.

I hope who ever is in charge of looking at Gas prices across the U.S. can look into this, also why should Americans pay more taxes on gas for Michigan roads when the Michigan gov and others haven't done much to fix the roads right in the first place. I mean other states can get there roads fix in way less time and all verse this state of Michigan. This just upsets me is all, more so when Michigan Gov is wanting tax payers to pay more at the pump and yet he and others are not fixing the roads the right way, this simply can not be fair or right.

Maybe you should look into passing a fair gas price or something, this way all states do not have more higher or lower prices then another state. I don't know I am just truly shocked and upset because yes it is getting near Summer time but not Summer and yet gas prices here in the state of Michigan just keep going up and up.

Thank you for reading this.
