The cheapest I've paid in the last two months was $1.39, but it's gone steadily back up. Right now it's $1.89 - $1.99. I paid $1.79 yesterday with my 10 cent Kroger discount. I can live with that. (considering it was over $4.00/gal last year.

2.05 here.Its better then 3.96 I guess. Still I thought gas prices were causing this recession??? They go down and we are still broke. Someone explain that one.

It depends on where I'm stopping...got gas yesterday for 1.95 though outside of the city.

It's like a vicious circle though, round this time every year gas prices drop (though they have not dropped this significantly in a while), and it always seems to coincide with the end of the Christmas season, when peoples huge credit card bills are due. Then in the summer, after everyone has gotten their tax returns checks, the prices go back up again for the "travel season". Hopefully they don't jack the prices back up as much as they have the past few years though.

I don't know if this happens on purpose or if it's just a crazy coincidence that I notice every year.

1.78 per here in Arkansas.

As for why the gas prices go up and down, even with Opec indicating they are cutting production, demand is down because the economy is in the tank. Businesses aren't shipping as much goods, or ordering as much goods, or buying as much goods, so the transportation of those goods on trucks is seriously declined. Hence, demand is down. Also, Bush signing the executive order to open up the Off Shore Drilling helped drop prices. See that puts out there the prospect of more supply. Even if they never drill a single drop of oil off shore, the fact they are allowed to, opens up the Prospect of more Supply which then decreases the Futures price per barrell.

Watch, if B.O. uses executive power to Ban offshore drilling again, the prices with sky rocket, again. That will in effect cut off the prospect of future supply, which is what the commodity of oil is traded on. Not how much we have now, how much we had yesterday, but how much supply will their be tomorrow.

Oh in California we are at the bargain basement price of anywhere from $2.12 to $2.40 a gallon depending on what side of town your on.

But don't fret California it gets better our state legislators who I lovingly refer to as union whor** passed the state budget yesterday and one of the "big five" tax increase will be to to raise the gasoline tax by an additional .12 cents a gallon which comes out to a 25% increase so slap that on top of the prices above. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Me thinks it's time to leave this state.

Now that is what I call a bargain. :banging:

Your state gas taxes are higher in Pa. than in Ohio. My mom only lives about 5 miles from Kinsman, Ohio and it's considerable lower there than in Greenville,

Yep, and it'll get nothing more than the "Officer Barbrady" treatment from the media and our precious politicians, because hey, at least it isn't $4.09! :coffee:

Sometimes I really hate this friggin state. Taxylvania is spot on...
