Gas prices....................................

What are gas prices in your area? As of this morning, $2.35 for unleaded here in central Mississippi. Dropping like a rock.*

In Corpus Christi, TX the price of unleaded was $2.13--some are still $2.29. Ten years ago gas here was $.99 a gal compared to $1.22 in Salem, MA.

Someone posted this a few weeks ago. It gives a good overview of how prices are running nationwide.

You think it might have something to do with the end of the summer driving months, Iran not rattleing their swords as much, and the discovery of a large quantity of oil under the Gulf? :

Re: Gas prices....................................

Gasbuddy.com tells me $2.33 in Raleigh. I've noticed the "cheap" gas station on the way to work drops their prices twice a day. I go by in the AM on the way to work, and it has fallen another few cents from the previous day. Then I come home from work and it has fallen another few cents.

You really think politicians control the price of gasoline?

Crude oil is down from about $78 / barrel to $64 in the past month or so. *Do US politicians also control the global price of oil? *I guess that would make Jimmy Carter about the stupidest person on earth.

Re: Gas prices....................................

As low as $2.13 in S.E. Texas, average seems to be about $2.35.

And the IEA revised this year and next year's global consumption downward by 100,000 bbls per day. With no hurricanes (so far - knock on wood) churning into the Gulf and disrupting pipelines and production wells the speculators are now in a selling frenzy. $2.00 a gallon here I think before October.

Just got back from the UK where gasoline costs 0.92 per liter. That translates to about $6.60 per gallon.

They can control the supply, which does control the price (e.g. - releasing emergency reserves etc.)

Jimmy Carter was a Stupid Politican, because he did things to the economy which hurt him in the short run. Increasing the Prime rate to 20% so that inflation would be contained. The Fed learned all it moves from the Fed Chairman that Carter appointed that tamed the inflation of the 70's. He took the tough medicine that the economy needed.

Not a stupid person however. Today we have stupid voters, that elect Politicians that cut taxes and do not cut spending - Just deferring the taxes not eliminating them. This is the Voodoo economics that Bush Sr. described that his Son is now implementing.

Re: Gas prices....................................

if the oil companies are price fixing and manipulating they got to be some of the dumbest price fixers ever.
