Cheap gas?

I got up and headed to work this morning and my low gas light was FLASHING at me. It’d been dinging for a couple days, but since I only have a couple miles to drive to work, I wasn’t too concerned about it. But I figured since it’d gone the extra step to get my attention, I’d go ahead and fill up.

I’ll admit I was almost giddy when I saw the sign reading $3.15 for regular gasoline! I haven’t seen it that low for a long time! Still kinda sad that I’m getting excited about gas being over $3.00. I still think it’ll get down into the lower $2.00 range, though it might be a couple years from now. People say I’m crazy for thinking that. But I bet back in the 80’s people never thought that gas would be less than $1.00 again, but I sure remember it being 73 cents back in 1997.

Sad thing is, when I was filliing up this moring, the pump had a $50 limit on it, so I still couldn’t quite get a full tank. Hopefully gas keeps going down and it’ll have worked out!

  1. I agree its sad that paying $3.15 is exciting. We haven’t reached that low yet but I saw 3.25 and got excited myself. I too believe it will go down. NOT under 3 though. Its always going to fluctuate up and down but I think once we passed $3 we’re not going back.

    Bookmarked for later. 😉

    I see you still disregard how often I’m right about things. Why must my vindication require such patience?

    Andrea filled up today for $3.11 today, BTW. You have 11 cents of being right still left.

  3. Saw them putting up the digits for $3.09 this morning!

  4. Yeah well I’m sticking to those 9 cents. You’re bound to be wrong sometime. I haven’t seen it happen yet but one of these days you’ll be wrong… just wait and see. THIS WILL BE IT! (but I hope you’re right).

  5. Saw 2.99 on the way home from work in kc.

  6. NO WAY! 2.99?!? Matt was right saying it would go back under $3 mark.

  7. i believe it was 2.96 today …

  8. I believe cheap gas comes from one’s butt. 2.00 is still not cheap, considering that oil companies can make good solid profits at $60/barrel.
