Gas prices dropping sharply, hit 5-month low
Unleaded off 15 cents in 2 weeks to average $2.87 a gallon, survey finds

Obviously, we must be stupid if the price of $2.87 a gallon makes us happy. Reuters actually writes the article as if it is a good thing that it is that low, which isn't low. We are puppets of the Oil Companies.

hell we are fighting a war and bush and his cronies still get the money typical while we take it up the gravey pipe. I don't even know why you should go to work. I just just send my money to the white house

If you want me to say "gas prices are dropping sharply" and believe it, knock about a buck and a quarter off the price of a gallon. THAT constitutes "dropping sharply".

They have us conditioned now to think that $2.80 is cheap. I honestly dont ever see gas dropping lower than $2.50 a gallon ever again. Sad....

$2.80 would be pretty damn cheap where I live. I have been paying close or around, $3.50 a gallon for close to a year. Biggest reason I traded my Duramax for a Toyota..... :banghead:

Well, that and I bought a 30' R.V. that gets a whopping 9 miles to the gallon....Can't wait to visit the lower part of my county next year during camping season....Should only cost me a couple of hundred bucks!!!

I am happy for the downward turn. I won't be satisfied until we get back to under 2 bucks though.

In San Luis County. You know, halfway between L.A. and S.F. right along the coast. I have been pretty fortunate to buy gas in front of Food For Less at about $3.45 lately. I have heard of Humboldt, but where is that????

All the way up North...Eureka. If you look at a map of CA, the coast line comes to a point and then heads east, that point on the map is where we are. About 100 miles to Oregon.

Yeah, Big K, you're part of the problem. You bitch about the price of gas then buy a vehicle that gets 9 mpg. I'm really feeling sorry for you.

That's actually pretty funny. I can sit here and bitch about gas prices in other states but in actuality, it's all cool. Here in CAL we deal with things as they are. Had I really been concerned with gas prices, I probably would not have laid down 60K on an RV. It would REALLY be cool to pay $2.65 a gallon for gas as some of the other posters do, but either way, I will pay what it takes to have my 7 year old daughter experience life and have fun with her dad in her R.V.

I am not really bitching about the price of gas, otherwise I would have not purchased an R.V that gets only 9 mpg. I was bitching about those who bitch about $2.65.....

Get my point?

That is very interesting. My fiance', myself and my daughter are taking a trip next summer up that way. We are going to visit the 80 acres my parents own in Oregon. It appears that you are on the way?

Well, the shortest route for you to Oregon would be up I5 which is inland. You would go through Sacramento then Redding and on into Oregon. I am off 101 which is on the coast. It is a much prettier drive than going up I5. Right in the heart of the redwoods. If you have not seen them, everyone should.

A new revolution! thats what I've been saying for years now. Corporations run America, not the voters.

Kids are back to school... Summer is over... Road trips are fewer and further between...

Gas prices always rise in the summer. And conversely they fall the rest of the year.

true, and by nov 5 we're hearing from the utility companies about the low reserve of nat gas and they need a 45% rate hike until supply catches up w/ demand in late march.
