Call me a cynic, but just wait.

A Moose will poop on the Alaska pipeline and the price will shoot back up to $2.70.

"Supply and demand"??? The econonmy has been in the tube for a year and gas was $4.00+ a gallon. 1.5 million barrels of oil cut back compliments of Arabs wallowing in our green back. More like we were s23ewed and will get sc43wed again.

Isn't "winter" gas cheaper than "summer" gas because it doesn't have all kinds of additives? That may be helping some too.

Wow, this is major news. I'll bet WOOD will have a crew there all afternoon to see if they lower it any more.

Thought it was reverse? Additives so gas won't freeze in your lines.

How come prices aren't more uniform throuhout West Michigan. Does it really cost $0.10 per gallon in a 14,000 gallon tanker to deliver gas to Grand Rapids?
(That would be $1,400 dollars to drive 45 miles from Plainwell to GR)
Maybe our local reporters could find out and tell us!

Be happy with $1.99 as the price is still up around $2.49 in some Northern parts of the state and in the U.P. Grand Rapids and Lansing have leveled off around $1.99 but the highest I've seen is in Ionia where it was at $2.29 this morning. I don't expect prices to stay like this for long. By next spring they'll skyrocket again and stay there for good.

Good Point, my husband drives over an hour every day to get to work. Each town he passes is cheaper than the last one. By the time, he gets to work he fills up, because it is almost .50 cents cheaper than the local gas stations where we live.

Wrong, it will be a caribou. Or reindeer for those who believe in Santa and Obama's promises.
