It's another week of relative calm at the gas pump, according to GasBuddy.com- the national average fell just 4-tenths of a penny in the last week to $3.267/gallon.

Prices nationally stand over 20 cents per gallon lower than last year on average, yet not a single state is seeing average prices under $3/gal. Missouri, Montana, South Carolina, Arkansas, and Wyoming remain the bottom five, with Missouri the current winner, averaging $3.02/gallon.

That compares to city-wide data showing just four cities with averages under $3/gal: Billings, Lubbock, Sioux Falls, and Amarillo. Oil prices last week gained momentum, pushing back towards triple digits, and begin this week at $97/bbl, even a midst a large decline in stock markets...

Well if we get only what we need maybe that will help force them to lower the prices. Of course that would mean every one has to do this, not just a few. You can't complain if you are not willing to try!:)

While we all want LOWER prices, the relatively stable prices over the last 3 months seem to me like a big improvement.

I keep hearing it's dropping but I really don't see it. Maybe it's my perception but until it's below 3 a gallon.

We picked up a 10 cent tax increase last month so PA will always be higher than the national average, and there's more to come next year.
