Enjoy it while you can. During the summer it cost me $130 to fill my truck and last night I was on vapors and a fillup cost $42. So nice.

The President that allowed his buddies to let the prices soar like they did, without doing anything about it, should be held responsible.

Great! Now everybody can trade in their economy car for a Hummer! GM is Saved! Yeah... right.

Gas prices and speed are inversely proportional. If you aren't going 15+ over the limit, you'll get run over!

Me? I'll continue to get 35 MPG in my Hyundai... in Town!

Great time to throw away those plans to dump the Hummer and buy a Volt!

Now the question is, how many people will spend more money in driving to Plainwell, than to buy $1.67 gas? It's like driving all the way across town to save 2 cents on Charmin.

Way too many I suspect. Especially based on the lines at that station last night.

I wonder why in K-zoo we can have 3 Speedway Stations within a 4 mile radius that have 3 different gas prices. What's up with that???

Prices are falling not just because the demand had dropped but all the investment bankers that we have written a blank check to bail out are in trouble and have pulled their cash from the Oil Markets.
A group of independent market consultants reviewed the trading and found that 80% of the cost of Crude and Gas on the market was caused by speculative investors. Now that they are feeling the pain the rest of the world is feeling they have had to pull their money out. Why do you think OPEC cutting production did nothing to stem the price fall.

I work in Byron Center and gas this AM was still at $1.85. I live in Allendale and it was $1.73, and Plainwell is $1.67...what's up with that. I just find it amuzing that the gas stations purchase their gas for the same price, but they all reflect different amounts. I have heard from many of the sales persons I work with that if they are down there they will get their gas from Plainwell because it's always the cheapest. I want to know what Plainwell is doing to keep their gas low. Maybe they can give some of their secrete so we can reap the benifits.

Praise O'bama from whom all blessings flow!

YEA RIGHT

How soon before the O'bama camp comes out and tells us there will be no tax breaks for the middle class because "the Bush administration was not completely forethcomming and thing are much worse than we were told"?

When they do will you believe that too?

I think it may have something to do with proximity to the nearest fuel distribution center.

We have a fuel distribution center right here in Holland, but our prices have not dropped that low.

I understand what you are saying, but honestly it's 23 miles from Allendale to Byron Center. I don't know where the fuel distribution center is, but I can't imagine that it would keep the prices so different. Maybe if you are out in nowhere, but not within such a few short miles. I could be wrong, but it's still stupid.

I'm talking about the spot where it comes out of the pipe, off the boat or off the train. Not the actual distributors like J&H Oil for example.
