Default Follow the bouncing gas prices

There's a chain of gas stations in my area called, "Kangaroo" - how
appropriate; this morning when I passed one, the price was $3.16, not two
hours later, it was $3.09. Last time, $3.10! (About 4:15)

This is the kind of up-and-down movement I do *not* like

:-P

Gas price has dropped here 45 cents from this morning. Price here will
settle at around $2.40 +/- a few pennies. We won't see sub $2/gal gas
ever again. The earth cannot keep up with our demand.

I remember when my parents raised hell because gas went up to 75 cents!

Me basically being an old guy at 62 remember gas wars and a gallon going
for 17 cents/gal. normal stable price was 28 c for reg and 32 for
hi-test. All changed in 73 and we all gulped hard when gas went to 50 c
per gallon. We still have cheap gas when you calculate in the
inflation. We'll be ok at least until we can come up with alternative
fuel. We need to do that in the next 10 to 20 years.

I'd go along with that, but it don't help the crude production. Mother
earth is trying, but can't keep up.

You still have it a lot better then we do in Canada. In my area, the
average price for 87-octane gas is about $1.30 (CDN) per litre. If you
convert to U.S. currency and U.S. gallons, it works out to about $4.14 U.S.
per gallon. The biggest problem here is government taxes, with the greed of
our oil companies being a smaller factor.

On the other hand, the U.K. probably has it even worse than both of us.
