Yes high gas prices are back. Let me refer to the checklist as to why it rose again:

1) Uprise in Middle East (check)

2) Tsunami in Japan, Hawaii, and possibly West Coast of US (check)

3) Sales Tax rose in a few States including Arizona (check)

4) OPEC going bananas (check)

5) US government conserving supply (check)

6) Greedy energy companies (always check)

PS: I wrote this the day of the tsunami so sorry if it’s outdated. Also the picture is outdated now its $3.81! Before I left to Kuwait, regular was $2.9!
