U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo crushed any hope that the federal government could do much to lower gasoline prices this summer.
Raimondo told CNN, "You know, this is, in large part, caused by (Russian President Vladimir) Putin's aggression. You know, since Putin move troops to the border of Ukraine, gas prices have gone up over $1.40 a gallon. But as you say, the reality is that there isn't very much more to be done."
Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, Illinois, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington are already above the $5 per gallon average. Several other states are pennies away from that level. JP Morgan Chase analysts say $6 per gallon may be the national average by the end of the summer.
