Well we are approaching the demand season noramlly which is summer;so who know when and if they wil go down. As world econmies recover energy consumptio will go uo not down which is what caused the previuos drops fro hghs in crude.hopefully if worl devents stablise then it will at least level off.

when the market has been regulated and oil is being treated as a commodity rather than an investment.

so basically never.

I don't think gas prices are going to go down significantly or for keeps ever again.

I am purchasing my next vehicle with good fuel economy as a must-have criterion.

Walked by a station here in SF today and saw $4.29/gal for regular.

My car needs premium, which is $4.49 :/

Oh well. California still kicks ass

Default Ah, $4.00 a gallon gas...yes, I remember those good old days

Regular is $1.348 per liter in US funds ($5.035 per US gallon) here in the Greater Vancouver area and shows no signs of going down anytime soon - if ever. And we have more gas taxes being added on July 1st. Methinks it's time to switch back to propane again ($0.598 per liter/$2.264 per US gallon). And, LPG is 114 octane!

In Seattle area most are at about $3.89, but I found a 7-11 the other day still at $3.59 and filled up all 3 cars. Since then it's gone up to $3.62 but that's still much less than the others. I have not seen $4 yet except for premium and diesel.
