((The impact of high gasoline prices in this country is being felt in more places than just the pump. In Washington, DC taxi drivers have upped their fares. And analysts say the airlines are likely to pass their higher fuel costs onto passengers by hiking ticket prices. If it costs more for trucks to run, most of what theyre hauling will cost more for us to buy.
JIM LEVINSOHN/UNIV. OF MICHIGAN: IF YOU SEE A 20 CENT INCREASE IN THE PRICE OF DIESEL FUEL EXPECT TO SEE A TWO TO THREE CENT INCREASE TO CONSUMERS FOR SOME ITEMS. In Vienna, Opec ministers agreed to increase production of crude oil but unless it is a significant it will do little to help lower the price at the pump. In the Midwest where prices are the highest in the country, refiners continue to insist it costs more to produce a new low pollution gasoline, A gasoline that consumers are required to use.

DREW LEVINSON/CBS NEWS: IN INDIANATHE GOVERNOR HAS SUSPENDED THE STATE SALES TAX ON GASOLINE. AT LEAST TWO ILLINOIS LAWMAKERS WANT TO DO THE SAME. AND ILLINOIS GOVERNOR HAS CALLED A SPECIAL SESSION OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY JUST TO TALK ABOUT GASOLINE PRICES. However with costs soaring--the biggest gas guzzlersthe Sport Utility Vehicles continue to sell. DOUG SCOTT/FORD: PRICES WOULD HAVE TO BE OVER THE TWO DOLLAR LEVEL FOR EXTENDED PERIOD. SIX MONTHS TO A YEAR TO REALLY START AFFECTING PEOPLES PURCHASE DECISIONS. So here at the beginning of summer were feeling it at the pump and beyond. If prices stay high we could feel it in the dead of winter too. Because those prices will be pumped right into our home heating bills. Drew Levinson, CBS News, Detroit.))
