A sudden spike that sent gasoline prices over $3 a gallon in Central New York has the head of service station operators calling for a state investigation.

Ralph Bombardiere, executive director of the New York State Association of Service Stations & Repair Shops, said Thursday he believes a state agency with subpoena power should force oil company officials to explain why the price of gas has gone up 40 cents to 50 cents a gallon since Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast.

"I don't know the real reason and neither does anybody else, except the companies producing the gas. That's why we need a government agency with some authority to call people in," Bombardiere said.
