Hunt Explains Gasoline Price Influences

University of Maine School of Economics professor Gary Hunt explained some of the factors affecting rising gasoline prices in Maine, which are higher than the national average, in a Monday interview with Channel 2 (WLBZ). Hunt, also a cooperating faculty member with the university’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center, suggests that reducing demand for combustible fuels will be more effective than trying to solve the problems by increasing supplies. Increasing use of electric vehicles and biofuels development will help, he said.
