    Wow, never thought i would see it again, but the price war between the two stations dropped one of them to 1.99. I filled up for 2.06 today then just a few hours ago, i drove past them again and the other was at 1.99. I'm now happy with the price of gas, but the lower the better! Average prices around here are 2.25 cash for regular, and 3.09 cash for diesel. They should drop again tomorrow.

    We are still overpriced at 2.30 here.....
    Has a ways to drop yet...stations are taking some profit on the way down.

    Too bad the price drops when the mowing season is almost kaput....I'd love to store up a tank load over winter at these prices but of course can't do that.

    Regular gas is $2.69 to $2.89
    Diesel fuel is $3.49 to $3.89

    The news reports say we're slightly higher than the national average...THEY LIE !!!

    $2.25 gas/$2.99 diesel. We will probably be under $2.00 for gas in a couple weeks.

    I believe the $700 billion buy out plan was a tax pay off for oil companys to calm the economy down. They called it a buy out because they had to trick us into thinking our taxes were getting used else where.
    Think about it. No matter what happens, ever! The price of gas is the one thing people complain about. Get rid of that, get rid of the crysis in 95% of peoples minds.

    Now we need to drill for our own oil to keep us from getting into this quandry again, while exploring alternative energy sources.
