Why Are Gas Prices Still High?

Dear Source:
I was reading an article on the Internet about how gas prices continue to fall in the US mainland over the last month (under $2 per gallon in a few places now) and I have to wonder why we have seen little or no drop here in the Virgin Islands? At certain stations I am still paying $3.69 per gallon. Can anyone explain this? Being that it is election season why are no government hopefuls or incumbents addressing this issue? I guess judging by the campaign signs I see at some privately owned gas stations I can reasonably figure it out…
