Utah gas prices go up by eight.

Pin It

Eight reasons Utah’s gas prices are higher than most of the country’s:


8. Utah is always a few years behind the latest trend.


7. Honest to Pete, KSL Newsradio’s Doug Wright will have nothing to whine about if prices drop.


6. Saving a few bucks buying all those SUVs unequipped with turn signals is finally catching up with Utahns.


5. Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. needs a new hobby/cause now that his rock band has kicked him out for, ironically, refusing to pitch in gas money for the tour bus.


4. Local TV stations have a crippling surplus of irate-fuel-pumping-consumers video footage to burn through.


3. All of our local refineries must now comply with DABC standards.


2. The economic future of hundreds of useless “Where to Buy Cheap Gas” Websites depends on it.


1. What’s the matter? Don’t you support Our President anymore?
