Super went from $3.18 to $3.12 here over the weekend... I didn't check to see if it had come down more as of this morning, but I was happy to see even a $0.06 decrease.

I'm skeptical... I have seen $0.20 ups and downs before... It goes down $0.16, then comes up $0.20... then goes up $0.05... then goes down $0.10.... then back up $0.07... Overall trend is up....

I saw something on 20/20 or one of those other tv news rags... A guy who has been forcasting gas prices for a good number of years and has been dead on accurate... He said by next summer gas prices will be over $4/gallon...

Who knows... I am surely not going to bank on some predicition, but his record sounded pretty good...

I am just not getting excited when I see an initial drop... in a month if the prices are still down, I will start getting excited...

well, soon it'll be time to heat your home, so it will be going down. but then your heating oil will be skyrocketing, so it doesn't really matter. they get you coming and going.

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

the price of fuel is pure and simple robbery. why not just stick a shotgun in my face and demand everything I've got instead?

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.

I heard on the news about a month ago that the reason gas is like it is is because the gas companies know that they can milk us for all were worth and could easily be back down to $1.70-$2.00 a gal. I don't know about now but were getting ripped off.

It's $2.89 on base and that's the cheapest around. Military only get to enjoy the "cheap" prices.

I got it in Fremont, MI this weekend for 2.88... one gas station was 2.87, but I refuse to support Walmart when I don't have to.
