A motorist pumps gasoline at a Mobil gas station in West Hollywood, Calif., Feb. 25, 2022.

With gas prices rising to record levels recently, the first people to hear complaints from the public are often the owners or operators of gas stations.

To talk about what they can and can’t control regarding prices, Chris Herb, president of the Connecticut Energy Marketers Association, joined “All Things Considered.”

He discussed how much control stations have over the prices they charge, why he thinks the current high gas prices could uncharacteristically affect consumer demand this time and how high he thinks prices could go.
