    Ohio. Interesting. Southern OK and N TX, regular is $3.70ish and diesel is $4.00ish. I believe these two states are slam dunks for Romney and closer to the refineries than Ohio.

    $3.31 at costco yesterday. $3.47 around the corner. Oil down, demand down. What does the price of gas have to do with US politics? You tell me? JD

    We have dropped from $3.69 to $3.19 in 5 days. Went down 5 cents from this morning to this afternoon at the same station. Wondering what it will be in the AM?

    I paid $3.35 here in SD the other day. It was almost up to $4 not long ago...

    Does anyone really think that big oil is going to lift a finger to help Obama?

    Big oil doesn't set prices and you know that. They can control production. However, production domestically is at record levels. Just check the permits issued at U S Dept Of Land Management's website.

    I use to think that increasing production was key to lowering prices at the pump. It use to work that way but, with today's worldwide demand for gasoline and diesel, the more that is produced the more that is bought. There is only one way to lower prices and that is to develope and use alternative fosil fuels. Worldwide consumption is up, not down. Here is the USA, the number of V8 engines on the road is at an alltime high. Most will continue to drive gas guzlers, including myself, until we have a viable alternative like CNG in fullsize factory installed trucks.

    We have the resources domestically to be energy independent and to continue to import mideast oil is not the solution as well as the fact that we make our enenies rich beyond imagination!

    We're still at $3.65 (for regular) here in PA ... but that's down from $3.89 just a couple of weeks ago. We never saw $3.19. The lowest it got over the past year (approx) was $3.29.

    On 10/25 Diesel was $4.05. Today(10/27) it is $3.88 at the same station while it was still $3.97 1/2 mile down the road. Same brand. Conoco. Go figure.
