    Default I Am In Shock!

    Just filled up my new 2013 Motor Trend Truck of the Year and ther price of gas was $3.04 per gallon! I looked at the Chevron across the street, same price. Looked at the Shell next to the Valero where I was and it too was $3.04 per gallon.

    What happened, the election was last month?

    Must mean that the reason gas prices were going up was due to the fear of Romney being elected

    I paid $2.99 today in MO. First time I've seen gas under $3 per gallon in a long time.

    20,000 miles per year/ avg. 15 miles per gallon. This equates to 1334 gallons of gas per year. It amazes me how we let media/people try to dumb us down over 30 cents per gallon of gas or 400 dollars a year/33 dollars a month. When it is diesel which is running all our products ( food, clothing, oil for the car) to and from the stores and they are all up a much greater percentage.
