With gas prices rising to the highest level since 2014, Auburn University professor of supply chain management Glenn Richey can discuss how oil demand and the gasoline transportation system influence prices.

He can answer:

  • Why are gas prices increasing even though the U.S. is expected to become the world’s leading oil producer next year?

  • Is the U.S. oil transportation system able to handle the increase in oil production?

  • What is the key to lowering gasoline prices?

Richey is the Harbert Eminent Scholar in supply chain management in Auburn’s Harbert College of Business. He serves as senior editor for Decision Sciences Journal and as associate editor of the Journal of Business Logistics and the Journal of Supply Chain Management.
