I will be going through Meridian in the morning so I can't wait to see what the difference will be now that oil is listed at less than $56 per barrel. (I know that the price at the pump is not immediately affected by price drops but a guy can dream.)
OPEC stated it's going to start a price war because they can't go out and buy their hummers and lear jets, their economy is suffering-boy does my heart bleed purple peanut butter. I wish we didn't have to buy anything from them, ever. I know that can't happen, but I would love it if we could tell them to stick their royal castles up their hummers.
The Murphy gas finally went below $2.00 here in SW Florida & with the 3 cent discount from Walmart it looks good. Now All I have to do is use up all my stored gas from hurricane season that I bought at over $3 per gallon & I can start to take advantage of it.
We are seeing $1.70 to $1.75 at many stations now. I can't remember the last time I paid under a $1.90 for gas....I just wonder how long its going to last. I hope people don't go back to the old driving habits too quickly thinking "the crisis is over"
