John Vierthaler introduced Mary Greer, Director of Public
Relations and Government Affairs for AAA of Colorado.Ms. Greer is an authority on gasoline pricing.She discussed the price changes in pump prices of
gasoline that have occurred this year.One cause of the price increases is the “war
premium” on gasoline began before the start of the Iraq
War.The United States does not have the refining capacity
to meet the current demands of drivers.In the 1970s, there were 350 refineries while today
there are about 175.During that time period, although fuel economy has
improved, vehicle miles have tripled.An example of the problems of reduced capacity was
noted in the gasoline pipeline break between Phoenix and
Tucson.The price and availability of gasoline in one part of
the country can affect the price and availability of it in
Denver.Today’s average price of regular unleaded
self-serve gas is $1,672.

who say life is not worthwhile are really saying that
they themselves have no personal goals which are
worthwhile... Get yourself a goal worth working for.
Better still, get yourself a project... Always have
something ahead of you to " look forward
to"--to work for and to hope for. ~ Maxwell Maltz
