Gas is going down because less people are buying gas, leaving a surplus of oil ( a main ingredient of gasoline ) on the market, despite OPEC's decision to decrease the amount of oil on the market by 521,000 barrels per day.

Demand is less, but it's primarily going down because the stock market is going down. It's being traded for less based on speculation about fewer people using oil in the near future as a result of an oncoming economic crisis.

Don't worry, OPEC plans to meet next month, and will most likely cut supply, driving the price back up.

OPEC, OPEC, OPEC...holding the industrialized world hostage over a non-renewable resource. You wonder when (or if) our inspired leaders will decide it's time to stop groveling at the feet of the automobile industry and start a legitimate effort to get us off gasoline and onto some alternative technology.

Then we can tell OPEC exactly what they can do with their oil...what's left of it. Maybe they'll find a way to eat it, after we put the shoe on the other foot and start holding them hostage over wheat and corn.
