Wait a minute....didn't we just have this discussion about 2 weeks ago? You said that people were stung by the high prices and have learned how to conserve...won't be driving much more even if the price is down.

I said...as soon as the price goes down far enough...people would be driving more and more.
What happened?

I also said that once OPEC made the major cut in production (which they did)that we would see flat prices for a while...then a rise...this will happen.

however, I also looked at the calendar and it's almost the end of the month for the December contract. I think it's going to get comfortable around $65-70/barrel personally, but I'm far from an expert.
and I'm still doing my part to conserve and the new muffler on my truck is getting around an extra 1 MPG. Not a huge gain, but something is better than nothing. I have also been checking my tires to keep them as close to their standard as possible.
BTW, the sanantoniogasprices.com web site is almost totally covered in $1.99 gas now and the highest of the top 15 is $2.03/gallon
I know the earlier poster won't want to hear this, but the most expensive gas in the city is $2.76/gallon and number two is $2.55 gallon

I'm certainly not driving any more than I was before. The drop just means I can afford gas AND Halloween candy.

I just drove past a gas station on Culebra between 10 and Bandera that had regular unleaded for $2.01; unfortunately, this isn't too helpful for me as I need supreme for my car and their supreme price was more or less in line with everyone else's on Culebra, but I thought I would drop a mention in here for the lucky souls who can put the regular stuff in their cars.

That was the one I saw yesterday! I'm surprised it wasn't any lower today.

Is there something wrong with the San Antonio Gas Prices web site map? I just got back from a trip and it is not showing the Murphy/WalMart at 1604 and Culebra nor the HEB station near the same intersection! Those are my two main places for gas!

EDIT: I had tried the 96 hours look, and still got nothing; but I did a 'Show All Stations' and finally saw them. However, the last reported price for the Murphy at WalMart was Wednesday at 8:35 AM, which is about 51 hours ago; so that web site must still not be working properly!

Cheers! M2

It only updates when people add data to it.. It's easy to become a member too.

As far as premium gas, it seems to be where the gas companies are making up their profit. My wife's car also runs premium and she's paying about 40-50 cents more per gallon than I am. I don't think anyone is bragging by saying their car runs premium. It just means the compression is run pretty high and that's usually the higher performance engines and anything turbocharged. My CX-7 used to require premium and it was turbo charged and direct injected. It's also how you get high horsepower and torque out of small engines.

I use premium. Usually it's about .25 more than regular. Adds up to less than $100 difference per year for us. We don't use very much gas.

I know, and am; but I was a bit surprised that it hadn't been updated over the past couple of days. I usually notice when I drive by; but this morning I forgot to look and figured I would check the web site when I got to work. It was then that I noticed it hadn't been updated!

Cheers! M2
