INDIANA (www.incnow.tv) -- If you are scratching your head every time you fill up your car, wondering what in the world caused gasoline prices to jump again, you're not alone.

Indiana Senator Dan Coats is joining some of his colleagues to reintroduce the gas accessibility and stabilization act. The bill would reduce gas price spikes by improving the reliability, flexibility and affordability of so-called "boutique fuels".

Coats says Indiana's fuel prices are among the highest in the nation and Hoosiers are feeling pain at the pump.

"While this legislation does not address every energy challenge facing our nation, it will provide the flexibility needed to help level out price fluctuations," Coats said. "Our country needs common-sense solutions like the gas act to reduce our dependence on foreign oil."
