I just paid $1.99 for gas at Crown in Durham 55/54. I almost caused a wreck slamming on the break to do a u-turn. They ran out of regular unleaded, so they honored the $1.99 price on the mid grade.

Maybe if we have gas prices under $2.00 through Christmas, it will help the holiday shopping sales.

Everybody was filling up and on the cell phone telling other people about it. Not good to be on the cell phone and pumping gas at the same time.

I filled up my car rental in Indianapolis this morning for $1.81 a gallon.

While we're all excited about this return to sanity I have to confess that I'm obsessing over this whole situation. It's way more obvious now that we've been manipulated (which I always thought to be true). Someone needs to get to the bottom of this and find (and punish) the guilty.

It is a big relief. I feel like a weight is being lifted off my shoulders. Our natural gas rates are going down too.

The price of gas is low because the economy is shrinking. Would you rather have low gas prices and a shrinking economy or higher gas prices and a growing economy? I would choose the latter.

Just an FYI, that's just a myth.

This is change I can believe in. Our economy is really looking up in the last week.

But there is a little sign at the pump that says "no cell phones", right?
