*SENTENCE COMBINATION*

Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important writing skill. There are many ways to do this. Try to combine the following three sentences. Do not use a semi-colon.

Sentence 1: The price of gasoline remains high even though the price of oil remains low.
Sentence 2: Some may blame the weakening dollar.
Sentence 3: There always seems to be one excuse or another for the high cost of gasoline..

The price of gasoline remains high even though the price of oil remains low, there always seems to be one excuse or another for the high cost of gasoline such as blaming the weakening dollar.

Well done, Brad.

Nichole, your answer has a comma splice. This is something you might want to review.
