Has the time finally come? Well, it may be too early to blow the final whistle, but gasoline spot values have eroded today, and that may pave the way for some price decreases that could show up beginning next week or even sooner.

The nation's hottest gas price markets, the Mid-continent region and Great Lakes should see some relief ahead as spot gasoline prices take a nose dive today. However, as indicated earlier, while the party may be over, tomorrow's pivotal Energy Information Administration report could upend the predicted drop in retail prices.

prices not coming down in my town, but drive 10 miles out of town to save 25 cent a gallon, is good if you're going that way.

why do we have foreign ownership of our refineries, and oil fields offshore, this is not energy independence. we are not serious about energy independence, when we ship away all the oil we drill. one day innovation will put oil in the background.

would be nice if we'd see prices in the low $2 range... given the barrel price, it'd be reasonable.

"The nation's hottest gas price markets, the Mid-continent region and Great Lakes should see some relief ahead as spot gasoline prices take a nose dive today."

And yet gasoline prices here shot up yesterday by 14 cents a LITER, or 52 cents for a US gallon....from 15 cents a LITER to 29 cents a LITER.

Something's wrong with this picture.

"Funny how fast the price goes up... seconds and how slow it takes to go down, (weeks),if ever."

Gas station operators make little, or no, profit when prices are rising. They make up for it by slowly lowering the price.

"Question: If gas is so expensive in Canada, why are the Canadians pushing like Hell to get a pipeline to ship their oil to us??? Anyone have an answer??"

I'll venture a guess. First, we import a lot of oil from Canada but we also export refined products to Canada. Second, Canada wants to export oil to foreign countries through U.S. ports.
