Rubin Quoted in MediaPost Article on Plunging Gas Prices

Jonathan Rubin, a professor of resource economics and policy at the University of Maine, was quoted in the MediaPost article, “Plunging gas prices put consumers, retailers in a holly jolly mood.” Although businesses and consumers are enjoying the cheaper cost, Rubin said the public is “incredibly shortsighted” in that “there can be serious long-term consequences” to low prices.
