Himmelstein isn’t optimistic that prices will remain low for long.

“I’m sure this summer it’s going to go back up,” he said. “Short lived, but it’ll be nice while it lasts.”

An Associated Press article on Thursday said that gas prices were expected to go lower for 2013 across the nation. The average price of a gallon of gasoline will fall 5

Gasoline prices just jumped 15 cents a gallon in the northern Shenandoah Valley. I'm really looking forward to a substantial decrease, but I'm not holding my breath.

It has not around here.

Here around, it has not.

It is $3.19 and holding.

Holding, $3.19 it is.

But it will rise soon enough.

Enough, but soon it will rise.

Great for Rexburg!!!!

Prices here however are going up. With lower demand and higher supplies it does not make sense. I guess all we can do it continue to reduce consumption where we can.
