    ...or am I just seeing things? I noticed on the way home a station that used to have gas at 4.50/55 that's now at 4.39.

    GasBuddy.com says low prices in Sandy Eggo are now around 4.23 or so. I haven't seen prices like that in a looooooong time. What about you guys? Anyone else seeing decreases in price? Is it just my area? Or am I just seeing things all together?

    I know it ain't much at all (especially after being in Jersey, and seeing prices still below 4 bucks!) but my heart's jumpin' for joy.

    (Yeah, that sounded corny, but it's true! Haha!)

    I've noticed gas has gone down a lot actually, but the closest gas station just went up .4 cents in one day. :(

    In my area of PA (outside of the Valley Forge area) we had been staying pretty steady at $4.05, but I noticed over the weekend that it dropped to $4.03. Not much, but I'm thankful. Sure better than going up 2 cents.

    where i'm at in GA, it's hung onto like 3.99.99999 for a while now, even when other places are just over four.
    i think they are afraid if they added that .1111111 we'd have a redneck rampage here.

    Gas dropped to an an average of $3.99 in my area, with the occasional high of $4.19 and low of $3.95.

    Other areas in San Diego are averaging middle to high $3.80's, and the lowest station is in south San Diego with $3.79.

    We haven't seen prices this low in over a year! :eek:

    Funny, the price of oil lost $10.00 dollars, but I only got a .18 decrease ?
