Default Gas prices!

I can't believe the prices we're seeing and I know they're even cheaper in other areas. I filled up one of the cars today at Costco, $1.79 a gallon. Kroger is also $1.79 and we have over 800 fuel points. So I'll take the other car and some empty five gallon cans and pay around a dollar a gallon or less. Maybe it wasn't all that long ago but I don't remember the last time gas was less than $2/gallon, I do remember when it was around $4/gallon.

This is perfect timing since we'll be driving the pig of a motorhome to Fl in a few weeks. We'll spend hundreds of dollars less for gas than we did last year, more beer money!

I paid $2.20 about 4-5 days ago. It hasn't been that low here since 2006.

I'm still amazed how some so-called economists think this is a bad thing. Maybe for the 1%, but it's great for us working class folks.

I filled up the truck at 1.59 yesterday. Anyone else notice how prices started to drop as soon as the Repubs took the House and Senate? Any co-relation?

Yet another good reason to visit Guns Galore.

Paid $2.34 for 87 octane this week here in floriduh.
I wonder if we will get the 10 cents jump back between the grades.
Right now 93 premium is $2.74 at the same station.
