    Unk, that was an interesting chart to look at, both by state and by metro area.
    Isn't it fun to watch the gas prices go down ...what a relief to the pocketbook!
    We're currently at $1.84. Still not falling as fast but going down a penny or two every 2nd or 3rd day.

    what i find interesting is ... you know how for at least the past year, people have been saying (and creating graphics) that say "when bush took office, gas was $1.50" or something like that? woudln't it be interesting if it keeps dropping as his time is running out? i won't hold my breath, but i have to say, that would certainly be nice

    $1.81 here. I honestly NEVER thought I'd see it below $2 again in my lifetime. I figured it'd never get below $3 again.

    Re: Gas Prices

    I'm trying to pay off my last credit card so I only buy gas with cash. I was almost on empty yesterday and only had $10 in my purse, so I thought I'd put some in until I had a chance to go to the bank. It brought me to half a tank!!

    We are at $1.95, not as low as some of ya'll, but certainly better than we were. I was just above the quarter mark on the gauge the other day and put in $15, that put me just over 3/4. Yea!

    Uhh, yeah. The oil companies want to stay off the current administration's/congress's radar, and they want to drive up demand. So we'll forget about riding our bikes or taking public transportation. We'll stop consolidating our errands. We'll give in to that on-sale price of that bloated SUV. Then following the inauguration and the new session of Congress -- five bucks a gallon, here we come. I hope I'm wrong.

    Gas today in my neck of Ohio was $1.72. Now if only kerosene would drop too.

    Eleven cents a gallon from Monday to Friday!

    It's around 2.12 here a gallon depending on where you go. Closer to the freeway it costs more, further away it is less. Makes no sense to me!
    Yup, with donuts!!
