I'm not complaining- we're doing alot better with gas and oil than we were doing a few months ago.

My parents are in Fl and I just talked to them, they are at 1.99. Higher than us so I'm happy.

Rte 37 had $1.85 today!

I actually heard someone complain at the gas station the other day.
His complaint was that the drop in gas coincides with the drop in the stock market.
I'd take 25 cents per gallon and keep my 401k in the most conservative fund possible if that was the case.

The fluctuations in gas prices are a good opportunity to burst some widespread media myths, but the problem is most people just aren't using their brains to figure out what's what. If gas companies and station owners were "gouging," why did they "let" prices fall so far so fast? You don't hear about "gouging" anymore because it's just not believable. As soon as prices shoot up you will hear about it in spades -- and millions will believe it because they are easily fooled.

lucky... we are still at 2.35+ here on long island. every time i go to NJ for anything, I try to have the least gas in the tank to get there, and fill it up before coming back, since its always .30-.40 cheaper there
