Lucky- we are still paying $5.40/gallon and will for the rest of the winter (the city buys the oil before the ocean freezes and we are stuck with that price regardless of how much the price of a barrel actually goes down). Can't wait to get out of here!!

$2.65-75 down the street from my house. I've been watching it going down every day since I pass by every morning. I have a quarter tank left of gas, but every day it goes down more, so I'm just waiting it out for a lower price. ha. No big deal, it's just funny to watch it go down as I drive by and look at my tank.

Costco near me is usually cheaper than this place, so I'm guessing it's less than $265. Possibly in the $2.50's area. Not bad.

I swear, I was in the car with my friend, and as we rode down the road, the prices kept dropping as if they were freefalling LITERALLY second by second.

The question is are we going to see the normal spring/summer bounce in 2009? If so, how high will it go? What about 2010?

I think a lot of the cost was due to speculators. It is falling, the same station had the price at 2.21/gal when I got off work...strange. Other stations were still near 2.44...must have a supply deal somewhere.

I think the real question is if the media is going to start calling this the "great oil crash of 2008" and the Government is going to step in and reimburse oil speculators who lost a lot of money.

You can actually 'shop' for gas before you go out and get some. Check out this MSN site.

Still $3.09 in my part of Raleigh, although it's been falling a lot within the last 10 days. NC took much longer to start falling, due to our fuel supply issues after Ike. Gas should be about $2.29 right now, although the previous poster said it already was in OK
