Gasoline has declined $1/gallon in the last month in my area from $3.26/gal to $2.26/gal. Who is to blame or credit now? Media seems pretty quiet on this, maybe their candidate cant take credit???

Beats me. Since Obama is proposing a "windfall" tax for oil companies. I hope he doesn't propose a plan that makes us pay the oil companies when they start losing money :P

If only our price here was as low as your is. At the end of September the price was $4.11 and now it is at $3.39. Your high price is what our low price is now.

Oil is dropping. They are in a panic. To get more sales you drop the price and hope the consumer doesnt catch on to his grand total.

Are you serious? You guys need a serious break!!!!

I never do figure out how the price can vary so much just by driving a few miles down the road. Orlando, FL prices can vary from $2.49 to $2.69 along one stretch of highway. I sure am GLAD because the high prices were really getting tough.

I haven't noticed too much about this on the news. I guess unless it is negative....they don't bother to talk about it.

Oh I know! Boyfriend and I drove cross country to Cali @ the end of August for a short term job and couldn't believe the price of gas when we passed into California!

The windfall tax was truth.
AFP: Obama calls for windfall tax on oil profits as gas prices soar

The other part was a joke

Gas is about $2.30 here in South Carolina, still dropping every time I go by the station..

..Of course, this always happen in the couple weeks prior to the elections, after November 4th, prices will go back through the roof.
