For sure it is. We have something called Gas over here(I know you guys use that for our word petrol) but its not like your gas. That is about half the price to our normal fuel, but there's 2 big snags to it. Firstly very few stations have it, second problem is it costs around £2000 to get the tank fitted in your car so around $3300. So works out cheaper in the long run if you drive for a living but useless otherwise.

I wonder how low they will allow the gas prices to drop?  I'm liking the way it's going but I know all good things will come to an end!

I think they are making less gas now so supply and demand will raise the prices back up.  In the meantime, I think Exon (is that who it was?) just made their largest profit ever.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Crazy, but fantastic!
I'm wishing Mass prices were as volital as Ohio prices are now. We are slowing following that trend. I just paid $2.37.

$2.37 doesn't even sound that bad these days.  I think when we started this thread we were in the low "3"'s?

As I recall, I started it because when I was out there a couple years ago, you were paying less than I was. Then a few months later you were paying more, then a few months later you were paying less again. That cycle has repeated itself yet again. When prices started to drop, you were slightly higher, and now you are much lower.
I still haven't found an answer as to why Ohio prices are so quick to rise and fall while the rest of the country slowely tracks.

$1.93 yesterday evening and today!   :cool:   I find it also interesting that Scott 30 miles across town has been roughly 7 to 8 cents above mine.

Still $1.93.  It hasn't moved in a day and a half so I am hoping it drops today.

Here's a quick poll question for you guys. Would you like the price to stay between $2.50 - $3.00 (this is like Ohio/new Jersey price ranges, I guess Swish and Dmast and in general just add 50-100 cents from your current average) with the guarantee that it'll stay that way until March 2010 or would you rather see this price go down, maybe even as low as the $1.20 but with no security whatsoever that it'lll be back at 5.00 in the next few months.
