Gas Prices Dropped, but Other Prices Have Not

Jan 19, 2015

The drop in gas prices should have caused other prices to drop together. But, it did not. The price for plane tickets, food, shipping packages have not dropped at all. Those companies had blamed high gas prices for their own price increases. But now, rather than lowering their prices, those companies are pocketing the difference. So, the lower gas price is a boon for them. And we are still getting ripped off!
