Fuel prices are going down, but we probably won't see $2.00/gallon gas again. Even with new discoveries, the oil companies want to keep prices as high as possible to offset exploration and spill-cleanup costs. Opec also can slow output to drive up prices.

. With more stations piling on at $2.99 today hopefully we may see some start breakingout from the pack and go on down lower in the $2's...

I do not think we will see $2.00 again until it is not the primary fuel. We may see slightly under $3.00 for a short period, but $3 is here to stay.

If the gas taxes are $2 or more a gallon, why are we upset with the oil co.'s?

Not going to happen. Oil companies are in it for the money. They will limit oil production to keep prices up. Market manipulation keeps them making big profits.

Don't mention past prices. It was 48 cents per liter in Canada in 1997. Could it be 48 cents /liter again? No way!!!

No. Prices just jumped back up to $3.55 here 2 days ago. Too many excuses to use to keep the price up.

Pretty much doubt that will ever happen again! How else can the big guys at the gas manufacturer could live in their big houses,or take all those nice vacations. Wish the government would step in and say enough is enough!!!

Only way it happens is if an alternative CHEAP fuel source comes out. Companies are too addicted to the $$.
