Go enjoy it, low prices are here to stay! I reiterate the 2.25 average for the next 10 years....

Gas is cheap, always has been since 1920 on average....those who don't heed history are consigned to repeat it.

Proof below that we are in a longterm downtrend on oil and look at Technology to find, drill and recover plus advances in efficiency and then there is the finding more ie Brazil...

CARPE DIEM: Gas is Cheaper Today Than the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and First Half of 1980s

Buy that Airstream and get on the road, no more excuses....

Heh, Heh, heh.... You are right about that ! A noticable decline in the amount of non-vital traffic, especially youngsters in their "souped up" asian imports with the tomato can mufflers, bumble-beeing down the road !

Buy while you can now it will be closer to $3.00 by June. Not sure what excuse they will use but you can bet on it.

And this is after 6 straight weeks of inventory build.

'Round here, the current excuse is that "inventories are low because of the switch to low sulfur summer fuels". Here's an idea. How about we use low sulfur fuels year-round? If it's good for the air in summer, must be good for the air in winter, right? That would eliminate one excuse for these greedy so-and-so's. Pitchforks, I tell you. It's time for pitchforks. (No offense, Jaxon.)

Hi, gas at the local Shell Station was $2.49 for Premium for several weeks; Now it's $2.55 for Premium. This is all I noticed because this is all I use.

Sounds like we can't complain here with $2.20 gas, $1.85 a week ago.
I think I will give up mowing the lawn, use the fuel for pulling the camper
