Wow what a surprise I filled up a few minutes ago and the gas prices are going down.I hope it keeps up!
UP..DOWN..UP..you're making me dizzy Mrs. Ava. It would be nice if the prices go down to the $2 mark but once the oil companies get a taste of big profits I doubt that the gas price will go down much. I still haven't heard WHY the price fluctuates so much, not that I'd believe them anyway.

from what i understand one of the problems has to do with obama printing more money (quanative easing).
when you make more of something it devalues the rest.
therefore
even though oil prices have gone down, it cost more to buy because of the devalued dollar.(example:$1 might equal 75 cents in the GLOBAL economy) so for every dollar spent it might actually cost $1.25 actual money. so the price per barrel goes down but to buy it cost more.
i'm not an economic scholar by any means, but if i know this, what's up with our politicians, they don't care, it does not affect their life.

Strongly agree, plus there's been a huge reduction in domestic oil from the gulf of mexico. Again, Obama. He's never worked in the private sector. Maybe that should be a requirement, like having served in the armed forces (a req in many countries)
