National average? No. I would be stunned to see that. That's crude at around $20.00/barrel.

We need to buy up all of the gas now and then sell it when the prices go back up!

Let's get some garbage cans. I'll be the Wildcard.

That's what I thought when I filled up three weeks ago for $2.50 a gallon. Now it's $1.70 a gallon.

I can't imagine we'll ever see $1.00 a gallon, but I sure wouldn't complain.

I am Texas where we drill the damn stuff and we are just now dropping below $1.80 in most places. Cheapest I have seen is $1.72 at a cut-rate place.

I heard that the KC area has the cheapest gas in the country. Is that true? If it is, I wonder why?

For KC, yes, I think it'll hit $1.00. I predict it'll be Jan. 12th. That's just a guess.

Yeppers. Prices of oil went up today and there have been reports of OPEC cutting production back. Personally I don't think it will go much lower than it is now and will steadly increase over the holidays.

Taxes.

It's all about city, county and state taxes.

It's possible to find gas in Los Angeles for $1.99. But most stations are still around $2.19 with some as high as $2.79.

I don't see many stations here with deisel but the impression I have is that deisel has not dropped much in price. If that is the case then there will be little to no effect on the price of consumer goods.

Sure we will.

As alternative fuels begin to make a significant presence, the price of oil will drop enormously. That may take 10-15 years but at some point when gasoline's relevance declines, so will the price.

As for our economy in this part of the world, the price of oil could stand to level out and even go up just a bit. Rigs are starting to shut down. So far we've dodged most of the recession problems out here, if oil keeps dropping, we'll be hurting.

It won't happen.

I expect our government will continue to flood the world with dollars which, down the road (6 month time frame), will be inflationary. This might weaken the dollar (the real reason oil spiked) and return the world to oil's natural price which is $80/barrell.

This will also lessen the loss that the USA is bailing out in the home losses for people who are walking from their mortgages. And the banks that bought the bad debt.

Alternative fuels are not a viable solution and will not change the price of oil. Expect all markets to return to some normalcy next year and prices to closely follow.

Then, how do you fight inflation? Raise interest rates.

Not many pumps left anymore that allow you to do that.

Either have to swipe outside with a card or pay inside to start the pump.

In fairness, there is no way Donger could have predicted a global recession of this magnitude. The only way the cost of oil could have gone the way it has was if the global economy went through something like this.

You just don't predict this sort of thing, and if you do you can't really understand with any certainty what it would do to oil prices.

I'm convinced that Donger is part of the Illuminati, thus giving him power to set global markets and prices.

If you factor in the inflation since the last time gas was $1.00 a gallon, I would say that we have reached that point, or we are very close to it.
