Gas is up around $4 a gallon, even more in some places. And yet the outrage people felt in 2008 when the $4 mark was breached just doesn’t seem to be there this time. And it’s not just gas. Heating fuel is up too.

Matt Cota, Executive Director of the Vermont Fuel Dealers Association, and Joe Choquette of the Vermont Petroleum Association explain what’s driving the rise in fuel prices and what options are open to consumers as the winter months approach.

But what do you think? Are you just inured to high fuel prices now? Or are you hopping mad and doing something about it? 

Also on the program, the Vermont Veterans Home in Bennington faces the loss of Medicare and Medicaid payments if certain deficiencies that were recently identified are not corrected. Vermont Human Resources Commissioner Kate Duffy and Vermont State Employees Association Director Mark Mitchell provide input into the situation.
