WE ALL KNOW THAT OIL AND GASOLINE ARE WAY OVERPRICED!!! It doesn't matter who reports this garbage. The writers write this garbage to make the article look like we are getting gasoline at bargain prices when the national average for the year will break last year's record for the highest annual average in our HISTORY!!!

With economic activity struggling to stay out of recession and supply 'above the average range,' why is oil above $50? (You only get one guess.)

The analyst or Fox need some remedial math. It either went down .27 to 88.82, therefore starting at 89.09 and ended unchanged or it went up .18 from some other level to 89.09 but it would be hard to do both. Whatever the change it sounds fairly unchanged from the POV of gas prices.

The fiscal cliff, as I understand it is when the various government agencies get less of our tax money than they got last year. Why should they be different from tax payers who are doing with less and less as Obama's luxury ride goes on. Government agencies are getting too much money and need to be cut back. Just maybe if their pet programs get cut enough they will start to fix the mess that liberal / progressives in congress have made.
