MD/DC is a crazy mix. i have one place near my house that is $2.79 and another not too far away that is $2.37.

it doesn't make much sense to me either.

It's $2.31 down the road from my office.

I think it will be under $2. (Without making it too political) The global markets are starting to feel it as well, which will make the dollar stronger against their weaker currency.

It's not a good thing internationally speaking, but it's a good thing my pocket speaking.

$2.25... November 30: $1.85. Not even kidding. (As the economy crashes, the American dollar amount strengthens, which lowers our gas prices)

EDIT: If you are wondering where this cheap gas is; Its Franklin. :)

Yeah, I've seen $2.35.

I find it hard to believe it will drop below $2.00 - I see that as the low point.

The last time I bought gas, it was $2.56 I think.

The cheapest I saw gas yesterday was $2.39.

It's definitely a relief to finally see gas prices plummet. I will be ecstatic if it dips below $2.00 again.

We'll see. It's about where it belongs right now - crude should be between 60-80 based on supply/demand (and should have been the last year). The speculators have left the building. I'm not sure it should go down much more though it may.

I saw gas today for $2.23

Just filled up the work car, cost me
$93.01 Aus Dollars for just under 60 Litres

it's around $1.55 Per Litre down here

November, I'd say $1.50 if that, with OPEC Threating to reduce the amount they sell and the Aus doller sinking to new lows Vs the US doller, I think we are still along way away from the 99Cents per Litre we was paying 12-18 months ago

$2.24 in Martinsville yesterday. - The past two weeks I've filled up at the Shell station off 37. Each time in the middle of pumping gas they've ran out of regular. Thank goodness Plus is only $.10 more.

$2.34 in Bloomington today.

$2.70 in Bedford today.

I live in venice = little to no smog (the ocean breeze blows it away from the coast line PLUS government regulation and community awareness has reduced the problem considerably.

My family moved to Sacramento over the summer and while my dad is making more money at his new job, its really not due to being in Cali. It is more expensive, but not too bad from what I understand. Property is a huge difference, but the actual cost of living isnt far off from what it is here in PA. I'm sure Los Angeles is more expensive than Sacramento though.

I'm on the east side of Indy. Most staions are under $2.05. I paid $1.96 at the Gas America at 10th and German Church. Their price was $1.99 and they took 3 cents off with my convenience card. The clerk told me they are stopping the convenience car on Monday. That's nothing new they only offer it periodically anyway. Sam's Club on Washington is $2.01. The Speedway at 10th and Mitthoefffer is $2.05. Gas prices this low is like getting a $200 per month raise. I hope it stays this way for a while.

Here's one of my MAJOR gripes about gas prices. I frequently have to drive to Terre Haute from Indy and back. I will usually stop in Plainfield to get gas, or stop in Terre Haute to get gas on my way back. this past Thursday I was driving back from Terre Haute and stopped to get a coke in Cloverdale, which for those that don't know is the halfway point between Indy and TH. I had just paid $1.72 for gas in TH, just 40 miles away down the same highway. In Cloverdale it was $2.21. FIFTY CENTS difference. I looked in Plainfield on my way through, just 25 miles farther than Cloverdale and it was $1.81. Those stations in Cloverdale have been like that for years. No gouging my @$$.

Shade - I don't think it is going to go down much more - at least not on a consistant basis. it might drop below $1.70 for a few days and then go back up. I think from now through early April gas will stay pretty much between about $1.75 and $2.00 - I'd be thrilled with that

Oh well, still filled up for less than $30 which i dont know when the last time was that happened.

I paid a high of 4.29 for gas. At that price a full fill up of around 11.5 gallons (13 gallon tank) ran me $49.35. The other day when I filled up for $1.55, it cost me $17. 83, for a difference of $31.52. I filled up at least twice every month, and sometimes three times, so these prices are saving me anywhere from $60 to $90 per month and that's just on MY car. When you add in my wife's car which is a gas guzzler, we're REALLY saving in comparison to the tune of about $200 monthly.

Now, let's compare this to the economic stimulus package that we all got last summer. Many folks got $600. My wife and got $1800 because we're married and have two qualifying children. Even with the $1800, we're currently saving more than that on a yearly basis with this downturn in gas prices. Now THAT'S an economic stimulus we can all get behind.

Shade
11-25-2008, 04:50 PM
Yeah, I only got $300 from the stimulus plan. The high gas prices were killing me. But what really grinds my gears is the belief that most of it was simply due to greed; the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.

If you don't mind paying the $40 a year for the membership (actually mine is free through my dad's biz) Sam's is pretty much unbeatable on gas. Also, free samples rule. The other day they were giving away completely delicious bite sized pieces of bacon wrapped filet mignon.

I just drove 1085 miles each way from Palm Beach County Florida to southern Indiana.

cheapest gas: $1.53 neat Chattanooga TN

most expensive: $2.03 in Jupiter FL

most of nothern FL was $1.90s and $1.80s

most of Georgia was in the 1.60s

Tennessee was usually high 1.50s, and kentucky a little more as you get near Louisville (1.60s).

Everywhere I saw off of I-65 up to Seymour was also in the 1.60s.

Seems like Indiana has it pretty good, only Tennessee seemed consistently cheaper on my route.

The incredible thing is that gas and oil prices are probably the best example there is in the market of supply and demand. Sometimes the speculators get in the way and that almost causes it to be hyper-sensitive to suuply and demand. (yes there are other factors - but if I were teaching econ 101 I would use the price of oil/gas as perhaps the best example of supply and demand

It's more speculators leaving the market than falling demand. The price has fallen over 200 %, and Americans are using less fuel, but not 200 % less.

A necessity? There are a lot of ways to save gas if money's tight. I could do it myself pretty easy - I'm sure I could check a ride board and carpool the 7 miles I have to go to work. Heck, our Senior Resource Center has started running a van around the county to pick people up - not just seniors either.

Even though prices are lower I'm still buying a new car in March or so - and its mileage will be in the 30's/gal.

Add to that the number of people who aren't working, the number of businesses and plants closing or at least reducing shifts, etc., and you've got a pretty big reduction in overall crude oil use.

I got petrolum the other morning

Ulverstone, Tasmania, Australia

$1.16 Cents Per L

Not bad getting close to where I want it..

You can save money by driving less but core business can't really do the same.. it's the same as electricity in many ways, you can save power but you still need it and business are not going to turn over electrical item at the powerpoint when the leave work.

well like you say, unless they are closing, which is trouble for everyone involved....

The seniors resource center is a good example, you save money by not buying petrol, but they replace your void with buying petrol to pick you up, sure it's less then you would buy, but it's still 20-40% petrol purchase, your just not paying for it...

I'd like to see a chart of oil prices over the last 12-24 months and you should notice an unprecedented rise for no apparant reason...

Oil is a natural resource, subject to eb n flows but we did see something I have never seen before, a huge rise which IMO was driven by speculators and investors, more the supply n demand..

Well if you don't have clients to show houses to you don't have to drive nearly as much.(thank you internet).

I was paying nearly $150-$250/wk for my caddie. I filled up yesterday for an even $20 (I buy premium) That takes me down into the 75-100/wk range
BIG DIFFERENCE!! Of course with lower prices I am more willing to do what I used to do, like pre-view houses before deciding to take a client out to see them.

I think I overstated the case when I said the world market demand has dropped by huge amounts. It isn't like it dropped 50% or 33% or 25%. But when you consider how huge the world market is a drop of 7% is a huge amount. And as I mentioned Oil, Gasoline is IMO Hyper-sensitive to supply and demand - it typically overreacts to changes in demand or supply.

I fully expect the price of oil/gas to shoot back up once the world economy and demand for oil picks back up. So this isn't a permanant drop at all. (so if you have a huge tank under your house, I would wait maybe another month or two and then stockpile huge amounts of gasoline)

Bit of OT on Oil Consumption

THE International Energy Agency says world crude oil demand this year is expected to officially enter its own recession of sorts, with oil consumption contracting for the first time in 25 years because of the deterioration in global economic activity.

"The consumption numbers have just been coming in dramatically weaker, particularly in the US It's very clear the weakness we are seeing," said David Fyfe, editor of the monthly report.

Demand weakness is most pronounced in the United States, the world’s biggest economy, where consumption is expected to tumble 6.3 per cent this year and 1.4 per cent in 2009.

Gasoline prices seem to completely defy logic. Demand has not dropped off nearly on par with the price differential in the same time period. It's like someone is just throwing darts at random prices.
