A Solution To Rising Gas Prices

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Jim Craft, a professor of business administration at the University of Pittsburgh’s Katz Graduate School of Business joined Mike Pintek Monday afternoon to discuss ways to reduce commute time and prevent you from paying high gas prices as often.

Craft suggests that a four-day work week would be beneficial for workers, but wouldn’t work for every company.

Craft models two different ways to work 80 hours in a two-week period.

    Don’t reelect Obama. When he came into office, his energy czar was quoted as saying that they will do everything to get a gallon of gasoline up to $10.00. He half-way there.

      Blame it all on Obama!!! Get a life.

  2. Jim says:

    Here’s another way…..allow domestic drilling.

  3. Mike says:

    The sad reality is that they could charge $20 per gallon if they wanted to, and we would have no choice but to pay it. They know this, and they’re taking full advantage of it. What makes me sick is that it’s pure price gouging. The oil companies will make record profits- again- and then rub our faces in it. The gasoline prices should have been capped YEARS ago.

    It’s going to wreck the economy all over again, and any “recovery” that has taken place will be reversed and then some. This country has gone to hell, and no one with any authority seems too concerned about it.

  4. John Moyer says:

    The only solution is to use less gas! Drilling for more oil and/or natural gas will not lower prices and not make us energy independent as has been often claimed. The only way to bring down prices is to bring down demand. That means using less gasoline. No more gas guzzling cars!

    1. Jason says:

      When offshore drilling was allowed (when Obama’s ‘law’ was temporarily overturned), oil prices dropped. If the mideast sees that we get to the pain point of allowing drilling, they back off by lowering prices. And gasoline is only a small part of the deman of the oil industry. Many of the items (plastics) that we use are petroleum products which contribute to the demand. We need to tap into our existing oil supplies while at the same time look into alternative sources. But until those sources are found we should use what we have and lower our dependencies on the mideast.
