The U.S. national average has again held relatively steady in the last week, declining by a mere penny to $3.64 per gallon as of midnight. However, I fully expect that by the end of this work week, the national average will have fallen below where it was a year ago.

Some fun facts about gasoline prices:

The national average for July was $3.590/gal. This is 17cts more than July 2012 ($3.416), 6cts less than July 2011 ($3.649), and 86cts more than July 2010 ($2.727.)

Where's the predicted "sharp" drop in pump prices from 6 months ago?

I'm getting tired of holding my breath. :)

Doesn't it always drop slow. But when it goes up, everyone goes up at the same time. All the stations seem to have the same price when they go up. I think a bit of collusion?

The problem in Michigan is the volatility of pricing, all over the Board.
