Gas prices appear poised to fall

GasBuddy Blog -- Finally. Gasoline prices look like they'll begin declining (in some areas) and continue their descent (in others). The Great Lakes states may see some of the biggest declines after wholesale gasoline prices dropped off last week to their lowest since late June. In fact, some areas of the Great Lakes could see prices fall to the low-to-mid $3/gal range over the next week, which would be their lowest prices since June.

Only problem is that crude futures are around $93/barrel and they should be under $90 to expect some real price drops. Sorry!

poised? gas prices have been dropping here the last 2 weeks. Only diesel has gone up :(

This morning locally, e10 junk gas was as low as 3.18 a gal. In my vehicles that'a a PGME (poor gas mileage equivalent) of 3.45 a gallon. Luckily, have a choice & I filled up at $3.25 a gal 100% Pure Gasoline. That will have to work, hoping for more price drops.

Chicago spot wholesale down to $2.38 right now.
GREEDway states should be seeing retail at around $3.
Currently GREEDway states are between $3.55 and $3.75 on average.
Come on GREEDway. We're waiting.....

I was on the road last night and filled up in Tulsa at $3.21. I love it. Cheaper enough to make a difference on the fillup price! I'm looking forward to $2.99 gas. However, this morning shows gas prices up in Tulsa at the same station. Hope that it's not the trend.

At last! Could it also have been a reaction to some government scrutiny of gas prices?
