When prices go back up, Obalamer will say it's because of the Republicans & the government shutdown. How stupid does he think we really are?

When ALL grades of gas are under $3.00/gallon then yes those are 2013 LOW prices. Even those LOW prices could go LOWER.

I think you're right "Jeff4U". They will use any excuse to make the prices go back up soon.

I haven't been out looking at gas prices in a few days, but the station where I bought my last tankful is down another ten cents according to the GasBuddy spotters.

Yep, greedy speculators are just too greedy. But let's see those gas prices keep on falling.

It's still a little too early to celebrate. When the dust settles after the Continuing Resolution spending bill and the raising of the debt ceiling, the FED will continue the printing of counterfeit money and we will see it reflected in the cost of consumer goods and fuel prices.
