Price of Gas Poll

I know that gasoline is at all time highs, maybe justifiably, maybe not. Much of the oil market has a lot of speculation built in and americans are tightening up. Just like to know who thinks gasoline will be cheaper in June than it is right now.

gas rose again from 2.28 yesterday to 2.36 for 87reg. It's crazy. Less than a couple of weeks ago it was at about 2.13.

They said on the local news today that the prices of fuel had peaked and they expected the prices to fall very slowly in the coming months. The national average is at $2.29 a gallon for regular.

My prediction from earlier this year was off by 9 cents.

Richard, you know good and well that petroleum futures always peak in anticipation of summer driving season and that purchases made between February and now are for just those supplies.

I guess we should be grateful you aren't trying to get us to bet you good money on this.

I sure hope it will get cheaper, but right now in Northern N.J., the price of gas is just getting higher and higher.

I think we will see it back under 2.00 within two months.

Pasid $2.06 today for Regular....I hope it goes down though....5 or 6 cents isnt going to cut it, it needs to go down by $.10 to $.25 to make a difference.
