The tide may have turned for weary motorists as the current national average has fallen behind where it was a year ago. It's been quite some time since that situation has aligned. There's more good news ahead- with some recent losses in wholesale gasoline prices, motorists may see a small break at the pump in the week ahead, depending on region. Most likely to see declines are those living east of the Rockies.

Even hard hit areas are now seeing lower prices today than a year ago- Los Angeles average gas prices today are over 6c/gal lower than a year ago. Chicago is is down about 2c/gal over a year ago. NYC is down about a penny over a year ago. Detroit, MI is down 13c/gal from a year ago. Even hard hit areas like Grand Rapids, MI...

Hopefully this trend of oil prices falling continues. I am sure everyone would appreciate that.

Giving back 5 cents after going up 80 cents is not anything to cheer about.

Last year, I didn't see premium price cross $4.00. Premium spiked over $4.00 in the past few weeks.

Big whoop - just because they are lower than they were last year doesn't account for the fact that the cost of oil was higher last year

Break up the Big Oil Monopoly, create competition between the oil co's, that will bring down the gas prices.
