Sad they are bragging like this is a deal ?
After a recent drop in gas prices, experts say people may be paying less at the pump this summer than originally predicted.
"On a national level, it is coming down," Neil Gamson, economist with the U.S. Energy Information Administration said Wednesday. "It has surprised a lot of people, including us."
According to the short-term energy outlook published by the EIA on April 10, prices were predicted to peak at a monthly average of $4.01 in May, averaging $3.95 through the summer driving season from April through September. That would have been a 6.3 percent increase from $3.71 per gallon last summer.
According to GasBuddy.com, gasoline prices in the Pottsville area Friday ranged from $3.75 to $3.83. The national average price was $3.832 while the state average was $3.893, according to the EIA on Monday. The EIA releases weekly averages every Monday.
so what does the EIEIO Know anyway ?
Good prices would be $1.49 a Gallon
Now that they got fines, prices will rise so we have to pay them

It's the pipeline! The offshore oil producers know there days are numbered so they are trying to boost sales by droping prices. Also usage was project to drop this summer as fewer traveled. I think it just might drop into the $60's per barrel in the near future. I think the bluff has been called.

I recall 29.9 a gallon (early 60's gas war) but mostly we paid about 35 cents a gal. We got our windows cleaned, oil checked, and a free glass or something. New non-luxury American made cars averaged about $3,000 and the average factory worker (they were once the core of America) was making $3 an hour plus good benefits. Today unskilled folks average about $9 an hour with crappy benefits and most don't get a full 40 hour work week.
To have it like we had it back then a lot would have to change.

I remember .25 a gal and you got prize stamps at the Spur gas station I worked at in the '50s. Usually everyone just got a dollars worth per stop. Couldn't get far on that dollar today. By the way, it cost the producers $5 a bbl to produce the oil. Some markup !

Like it or not, it's the political season so that's why prices are dropping.
Look at gas prices during the presidential campaigns since 1972. There's a direct co-relation between the timing of the elections (regardless of party) and the price of gas.
Price always goes down as the elections get closer, always goes up when they're over.
Republican or Democrat . . . makes no difference. Soothes the masses and influences the vote in favor or whomever is already in power.
If it hadn't happened in 2008, the current administration might have won all "57 states." Any way you slice though, it would have more heavily favored the party not in power.

In spite of BO some of our oil production has gone up. North Dakota's projected production for 2012 is suppose to surpass California's 196 million barrels and possibly Alaska's 209million barrels, but will lag behind Texas's 553million barrels.
BO won't approve part of the pipeline that would bring in oil from the Alberta,Can. so they are going to build a pipeline to send it to their west coast to sell to China.
