People still pay for gasoline?

Siphoning gas is the way to go, nowadays.

$3.63 here too.  I hope it continues to go down...afterall, ExxonMobil can stand to get profits of only $49 billion compaired to over $50 billion by just lowering the prices just a little, ya think! :\

I don't know if the $3.60 price per gallon is what they are making a profit on. They are probably not even getting a penny per gallon profit on that. But the volume is pretty high.
It's the $130/barrel of oil (or whatever it is now) that is the real source of profit methinks.

Still waiting for solar energy? This may be the missing link. For years the problem with solar energy is you need the sun to make it work, and there is no sun at night. Is this the answer?

Quote
CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts (Reuters) - A U.S. scientist has developed a new way of powering fuel cells that could make it practical for home owners to store solar energy and produce electricity to run lights and appliances at night.

A new catalyst produces the oxygen and hydrogen that fuel cells use to generate electricity, while using far less energy than current methods.

With this catalyst, users could rely on electricity produced by photovoltaic solar cells to power the process that produces the fuel, said the Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor who developed the new material.

"If you can only have energy when the sun is shining, you're in deep trouble. And that's why, in my opinion, photovoltaics haven't penetrated the market," Daniel Nocera, an MIT professor of energy, said in an interview at his Cambridge, Massachusetts, office. "If I could provide a storage mechanism, then I make energy 24/7 and then we can start talking about solar."

Solar has been growing as a power source in the United States -- last year the nation's solar capacity rose 45 percent to 750 megawatts. But it is still a tiny power source, producing enough energy to meet the needs of about 600,000 typical homes, and only while the sun is shining, according to data from the Solar Energy Industries Association.

Most U.S. homes with solar panels feed electricity into the power grid during the day, but have to draw back from the grid at night. Nocera said his development would allow homeowners to bank solar energy as hydrogen and oxygen, which a fuel cell could use to produce electricity when the sun was not shining.

"I can turn sunlight into a chemical fuel, now I can use photovoltaics at night," said Nocera, who explained the discovery in a paper written with Matthew Kanan published on Thursday in the journal Science.

Companies including United Technologies Corp produce fuel cells for use in industrial sites and on buses. Automakers including General Motors Corp and Honda Motor Co are testing small fleets of fuel-cell powered vehicles.  Continued...

I hit $3.50 last week and I was ready to throw a party.......................well north of columbus, there is a Swifty gas station that had $3.55 and only $3.50 if you pay cash!   They pump it for you also!  :-o     

My trusty station near work just dropped from $3.59 to $3.57!   That is still pretty good!
