Probably a dozen stations around town pricing in the 2.49 to 2.59 range. Still see a few with prices around 2.79 but they all look like the "maytag repair man".

That is hard to understand when we are paying 3.50 still.

It just goes to show how effective the "brain washing" has been. Last year when prices were around $2.60 everyone (including me) was moaning about how terribly expensive that was and now it's discussed as cheep. Go figure

It's weird to think of even $3.00 gas as "cheap" - and I'm always correcting myself to say "well, relatively speaking!" It's "cheap" in Arkansas and parts of Louisiana & Texas, compared to home - some stations are about $2.98 in these areas, while at home it's still $3.60 at Walmart!!

Reg hit 2.95 all over town today, and diesel is 3.45 It is hard to believe, when I got the diesel truck two years ago, that diesel was .45 cheaper than gas. But I would do once more Love my six banger

Gas is $2.82 a gallon this morning in Missouri. I am sure this trend is temporary, but it is nice to have gas below $3.00 a gallon again!

We were in New York State this past weekend camping at Darien Lake (again!) and diesel was $3.89 still at the Flying J, which had the cheapest prices I could find - it was still floating around $4.00 in urban Buffalo NY.

After the conversion to Canadian Funds, given the relative beating it's taken recently it was actually cheaper to fill up on this side of the border when we got home.

Ain't it wonderful, we are beating a path to the gas station for gas barely under $3.00 per gallon. Who would have thunk it!
