    Yes... but... all because the economy has stopped, that means less things are being produced, less energy consumed.....

    Yeah... it's too bad the reason for the drop is the drastic decline in demand. When the economy picks back up the price of gas will shoot up again.

    I wish there were more hybrids and electric cars around. If I could get all these hippies to buy one of those, it'd be less expensive to fill up my carbon footprint!

    Not entirely. There's an election coming up. Watch what happens around mid-November.

    I hate politics.

    If gas prices keep going like this, people will be begging me to buy their hybrids for $300.

    I saw $3.45 for regular on the way home from work today. Its nice to see lower prices, but I have a feeling they'll just get it back when I have to buy fuel oil. :rolleyes:

    Demand for gas is down, demand for heating fuel will go up. Where's the price shift gonna go? *sigh*
