Gasoline dropped to $1.97 over the weekend here. How many years has it been since gas was below $2 a gallon?

I wish! our state has one of the highest gas taxes around but I did get gas yesterday for 2.37 and was racking my brain to remember when it was that low too. Its a relief on a straining budget isn't it :)

Time for the politicians to step up and take credit as they make their bids for re-election???????

Still over $3 on this island.

I don't care who takes credit (most of us can figure out the reason for this with just a bit of knowledge/information) it just means our trip to M* in a couple weeks will allow us more spending $$$.

WOW......and I got excited last night paying $2.28 !!! Citgo offers 5 cents off if you purchase their cards ( the cards are initially a dime,then you can re-load the card over and over. There's only one gas station here in town that you can get 10 cents a gallon off the regular price. Last night the regular price was listed as $2.38. This Citgo gas station is right across the street from the Jo-Ann fabrics store in the town I live in. So, whenever I go to Jo-Ann's i always get gas there at the Citgo....
I was thrilled to pay $2.28 per gallon.....and would have been doubly thrilled to have paid $1.97 of course !! Lucky YOU !

Gas in Colorado is costing $2.65 to 2.75/gal.

Here in Pa it is around $2.55 where I live. Most of it is the taxes.

When I lived in Japan as a teenager we paid 10cents for regular and 11cents for high test. Of course that was on base and in the 60's. LOL

$2.64 a gallon here yesterday. Diesel was $2.43. My friend drives a diesel pickup and she was thrilled a couple months ago when diesel dropped below gas.

Hey, Granny Fran. I lived in Japan in the 60's. We arrived in '60 and left in '63. I was older than a teenager though! I had 2 little ones. I remember the cheap gas, and my best friend who had a little VW. We could go all day on a dollar's worth of gas!

I paid $2.14 today.

$2.89 in Lakebay. Probably closer to $2.69 if I spent the $5 in bridge tolls to drive to the gas stations on native land. Still better than $5 we were at a few years ago.

We've been running $1.97 to $2.06 for over a week here in NC!!

It was $1.88 here yesterday in TN..... :icon_woohoo:

$2.87 here in the Idaho panhandle. University of Idaho is here so our gas is always higher then the rest of the state.

Sad part is the workers in the oil fields are losing their jobs. Many a family struggling right now. And its not their fault.

It has been below $2 for several weeks here, we are usually on the lower end with the rest of the country. When I took my road trip to Wyoming this summer it was tough seeing it over $3. Of course, lower prices have caused many around here including my geologist son to lose their job, one of those double edged swords.
