ETH Main Net

Why are gas fees so high?

Main net fees are high but if your gas fee is much higher than you expect it could be due to a problem cause by having too little ETH in your wallet. The deposit transaction will use roughly 198,730 gas.
It will estimate the fee at around 298,095 gas as a precaution for gas limit.
The withdraw transaction takes 124,809 gas if you are in the shorted bracket, and estimates 209,713 gas.
If you have less ETH than (gasprice * gas estimate) then the estimate breaks and continues to show higher numbers.
