For the first time in months, John Powell was happy to fill up his car with gasoline Friday.

The Moore resident paid $2.97 a gallon to fill up his Toyota Solara.

“I drive a lot. It helps me when the price goes down this much,” said Powell, who lives in Moore and works in Edmond. “It probably saves me on average $10 or $15 a week.”

David Jasinski, also of Moore, expressed a similar sentiment.

“It's been a long time since the price was this low,” he said. “This will save us some cash.”

Fat chance of it happening in the blue states, their fuel taxes are ridiculously high!

On HoustonGasPrices.com, you have to be $2.91 a gallon or less to get on the home page as a low price station. Although I suspect many of those stations have two-tier pricing.

Anybody who lives in Moore and drives to Edmond to work daily should move considerably closer to work.

The more it drops, the more money back in my pocket. Currently spending more than $120 a month on gas.

Fuel has always been cheaper up there. I am always suprised when I visit the inlaws up there.
Even their e-0 fuel (which they have a lot of) is cheaper than e-10 around me.

Average price in Tulsa is $3.10, but some stations have been at $2.99 for about a week. The cheapest E0 is about $3.26.

Happy for OKC. Hopefully Ohio will get the next bunch of gas prices less than $3.00/gallon.

The prices are declining but chances are it is a lull and will reverse itself when the greedy speculators and oil investors decide to change things around.
