Washington D-C – Add Senator John Barrasso's name to the list of those upset about rising gas prices. Barrasso has become a co-sponsor of a bill that asks the federal government to stop adding gas to the Strategic Petroleum reserve. Analysts say it can add as much as ten percent to the price of gas. Wyoming gas prices are listed among the lowest in the nation but Barrasso says the price increases still hit Wyomingites hard. Mostly because of all the long distance traveling those in Wyoming are forced to drive.
Barrasso is calling the Strategic Petroleum reserve a government policy that does not make sense.
