Why is gas so expensive in Iowa?
I’ve been living and commuting in Iowa for years, and suddenly I’m paying out the nose just to get to work. Why is gas so expensive in Iowa right now?
Answer provided by
I know this won’t make the expense any less painful, but gas prices in Iowa are actually some of the lowest in the country. That said, here’s why gas is so expensive in Iowa—and everywhere else—right now:
- Decreased gas and oil imports
- Fossil fuel supply
- Increased demand
Due to the ban on Russian oil and gas imports on top of supply-chain disruptions caused by COVID-19, U.S. citizens have seen gas prices shoot up over the last several months.
