High gas prices are causing people to drive slower to conserve fuel. Drivers in Rocky Mountain states, where refineries can tap low-priced crude from the U.S. and Canada, are paying far less. If the above practice by oil companies and refiners strikes you as unfair or un-American, you’re not alone; the actions of gasoline exporters are literally helping keep U.S. gasoline prices high.
