LETTERS: Many factors affect cost of gas in Las Vegas

Regarding Bill Golas' letter on gas prices ("Highway robbery," Sept. 16 Review-Journal), the national average of $2.49 per gallon is a weighted figure, somewhere between the lowest and the highest price. It is not intended to be the figure at which everybody must sell their gas. Included in the $3.15 that he just paid here is Clark County's new, higher fuel tax. Other parts of Nevada have lower rates. Some states have still lower taxes.
