Gas Under 3 Dollars a Gallon? Yes, there is gas under $3/gallon. It was first $2.99/gallon, it went to $2.91/gallon yesterday and back to $2.99/gallon today at an ARCO station in Gresham. It made the local news yesterday!
The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon, *$3, *$3.50/gallon or *$4.00 is Not the new low! Cheaper fuel prices, the better the economy will come back and the better 'Coming out of the closet' Sneeky's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy will come back that much faster. Sneeky's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continue to be down! The mindless Sheep that voted him back into office are also to blame for this lousy economy that will Not improve anytime soon.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

We are seeing it in southwest Ohio. Will go lower as long as GREEDway (Speedway) doesn't get the greed itch and spike us as usual.

Enjoying it whilst we can.

“Gasoline was under $2.00 a gallon in Jan 2009 before [Obama] took office. Today the average for a gallon of regular gas here is $3.63.”

And why is that true? Because the economy had been driven over a cliff under the Bush administration, causing gas to drop from record highs (over $4/gal) in the summer of 2008. If you really want gas at less than $2/gal we will need to fall into another depression. Be careful what you ask for.

I get SO tired of seeing this crap. Sure you are correct that it was under $2 in Jan 2009. But what was your price 6 months prior? Somewhere around $4.60! Please climb down off your reich wing nut job soapbox and join us in reality.

Just for how long it will stay there? Or I should say, how soon it will get back to the recent high prices? What is going up doesn't go down, not for the initial prices it was few years ago... sounds negative, but c'est la vie...

Still have quite a way to go to get prices under $3/gallon in the Las Vegas area (mostly due to California refineries charging outrageous prices).
