This is good

Postby xit [OP] » November 27th 2014, 8:13pm

Was out driving around near a town about 16 miles away and the closer I got the lower the gas prices got. I kept going just to see what the lowest was & I saw $2.00 per gallon, had to fill up on that. :thumbup: :rockon: My wallet is happy.

I was trying to think how long ago the last time I saw $2.00 per gallon gas, been a while. From the talk I have listened to, the prices will continue to go down. :thumbup:

We filled the van today for $2.69/gal. Since I had ¼ tank (hubby got an earful because of that), that was a good savings on the fill.

I wish it was $2/gal, but that's not gonna happen in the Demokratik Republik of Marylandistan.

It's dropped in some places to $0.99 a liter.

Though that's still $3.75 a gallon.

I'm paying $1.16. ($4.39 a gallon)

Enjoy our cheap Canadian gas. We sure aren't.

Ours is 2-something per gallon. Then with our Fry's (Kroger's) fuel points discount it ends up under $2.

Regular flavor in Joisey is in the 2.67/gal area just about anywhere I look, branded, and unbranded stations.

Eye doesn't have a hope that it'll stay that way though. Eye does think there is an election coming up soon, after which...
