Oil production

Dear Editor: On April 10, an article by Jack Gerard stated that North Dakota produces 1 million barrels of oil per day. (“Obama’s New Budget Will Hamper Energy Job Creation,” 4/10/14)

There are 42 gallons of oil per barrel, which means that 42 million gallons are produced each day.

So why is our gas $4 per gallon when it should be $3 per gallon or less? Prices should go down, not stay the same.
