High gas prices reminder of sour economy
The Kansas City Star
Anyone who traveled over the Labor Day weekend got stung at the pump.
Gas prices in the Kansas City area hovered around $3.70 a gallon. Even though it was possibly the highest it has ever been this time of the year, it was not as high as elsewhere.
That has always been a Kansas City mantra. Although lately, it has not always been true. But it was this time.
AAA reported that the average price for regular gasoline was $3.829 a gallon. Gasoline prices could become as much of an election issue as the stubbornly high unemployment rate in this country.
