From time to time, we've had discussions on the price of gas. Unfortunately, those were recently lost. I'm just wondering, how much (if any) has the petrol in your area gone down?

The prices, here in the North Texas area where I live, have really been dropping. We were fortunate that it never quite made it to $3 a US gallon, but it went right up to it. The recent drop from about $2.99 a US gallon to $2.09 is really been something to smile about, but when my husband found it in East Texas for $1.96, I thought "Now THAT is progress!" That sounds like it's time to hook up the trailer and start camping!

Has it made it down that far where you live?

Below 2 bucks???? I am moving!

I have been averaging 2.49 or so the last month. It got to over 3 bones here after Katrina washed ALL the gasoline away from the California refineries..



Don't get me started.

Gina,
Where are you finding gas at that price? The best I've found is $2.66/gal. Thrifty might be a little less, but I'm uneasy about the quality.
What a Christmas present it would be if it would stay below $2 for an extended amount of time.
Mike, I hope your local prices prove to be a reliable forecast for the rest of the country!
Gonna be some crowded highways and campgrounds if the prices stay low. What a boon for the tourism and supporting industries! There might even be some work for some of the folks devastated by Katrina.
Suz, thanks for renewing the topic.

It's in line with what Gina said right around here. 2.49 at the cheapest stations (wamart and vons) to 2.75 at the more expensive stations.

I use http://www.gasbuddy.com to look up gas prices in the midwest and throw eggs that direction.

I'm with Gina...don't get me started.

Every store in Silver City, including Wal-Mart, is always the same price.

$2.49 yesterday. I haven't been to town today. Max was $3.10 a few weeks back.

Kurt, that's at most of the Valeros on the Mountian (Except OURS in hooterville which is getting retrofitted tanks this month) and also around Corona.

The town, not the Beer.
