Daines Visits With Montanans About Gas Prices

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - With the fourth of July right around the corner, gas stations are busier than normal.

On Wednesday, Congressman Steve Daines visited with customers at a gas station in Bozeman to see how people are dealing with the high gas prices.

In Bozeman, prices are running about $3.56, which is slightly above the national average of $3.49.

Daines advocated construction of the Keystone Pipeline, a North American energy project running through Montana that he hopes will mitigate the cost of oil.

"The policies back in Washington has a direct effect on what goes on here at the pump and we need to continue  North American Energy production," said Daines. "Prices low at the pump not only helps family's budget, but it creates jobs and tax revenue. The most exciting part is we could be energy independent in the next 10 years and not have to worry about middle eastern imports anymore."

People we spoke to at the pump said they we're hoping for lower prices at the pump, but many said it didn't change their 4thof July plans.
