Then how would you account for the rest of the country's gas prices remaining relatively stable?

They released the winter blend early this year (usually starts in Nov) which should increase supply by 10% and lowering prices somewhat. Just in time for this winter like weather.

Guy who rides his bike to work everyday just said he loves these gas prices. I think I am going to steal his bike seat and see how much he likes riding it back home now.

Prices like this make the risks of riding a motorcycle seem worth it.

I remember it, and it was retarded. Glad the other side agrees with me finally.

That being said, prices are super high. I can't believe it is getting zero media attention. Ok I can believe it because people will blame Obama for it like they did Bush and the media can't let that happen. Gas prices were front page stories for months when Bush was in office.

That being said, I need to ditch the 3.5 for a 4 banger.
Excellent point but to balance things out I am going to blame Obama. It is only fair
