this guys "Mike Williams" comment's don't make sense. Yeah, let's drive to the other side of town, use up more gas to save a few pennies. Let's congest our roads and highways to save a few pennies. Let's use up the better part of 1/2 - 1 hour of our precious day looking for cheap gas. As an economics professor he should know that most of us don't shop that way. I bet his mother is retired with nothing to do all day. I have a full time job & two kids. Mr. Mike Williams Are you kidding.

I shop for cheap gas. I won't drive miles out of my way, BUT I'll note the cost leaving the area I live and if it's cheaper out where I work I buy there, out where I go to school, I buy there. If it's more expensive everywhere else I wait till I get home.
Simple, and saves money.

Mike Willimas keep doing what you are doing. I love your reports.

As for gas prices, big brother should step up to the plate and regulate the price. They can do anything they want to.

Until the U.S. Government steps in gas prices are going to have a major impact on the economy as a whole. OPEC is having a duck fit right now because they aren't making the mega billions everyday like they were when crude was at $150 a barrel. OPEC has since started dropping production by a million barrels a day and they continue to keep dropping production in efforts to get the prices back up so they can collect more money. Many of the countries in OPEC depend on the money as a large portion of their economy to make their budget.
