    Regular near Buffalo jumped from $3.29 to $3.63 for regular just this evening. Reservation prices, which are usually 20 cents lower are the same as regular retail stations.

    The Oklahoma legislature is considering something which is interesting and certainly not expected. They are wanting to completely drop the state tax on gasoline (which is pretty high) and use our rainy-day fund for a period of three months.

    I don't think this is going to be a permanent fix because I believe that once they get the prices up, they usually don't come down very far. But, it is a nice gesture coming from our elected officials who usually push for higher taxes.

    That idea was tossed around at the national level also but I don't know what happened to it.
