    The ban on off-shore drilling expired, and the price of oil came crashing down. Look for a new ban in late January, and watch the price of gas double in a heartbeat.

    I'm concerned about that too, not to mention more taxes.

    I paid 2.49 for heating oil yesterday


    The oil co wanted me to "lock in" at 4.09 a couple a months ago. I'm glad I didn't.

    To be honest, I don't have a good feeling about the prices crashing as fast as they are. It seems to me that the oil producers are waking up to the fact that we are heading into a severe worldwide recession and demand will be way down at any price.

    $1.99/gal for unleaded is popping up all over, now. The neighborhood stop-n-rob (a Chevron station and mini-mart) goes for $0.20 over that, but then they cater to the yuppies who don't mind.

    Glad to see the air's being let out of that bubble. I guess it means the oil giants will only make $100B in profits next year. Oh nooooo ... bailout!

    I agree, crashing prices falling this fast is a very bad sign we're in for tough times ahead.

    Hopyard, I disagree. OPEC members are not happy at all with the price dropping like crazy just the opposite. Their projected income has basically disappeared into thin air and they will have a tough time maintaining their population happy now. If you think we ware going to have troubles with unemployment rising here, you have no idea the kind of hell it will cause in OPEC countries because they won't have the cash to play Daddy Government That Gives Everything Away.
    Venezuela is about to take a bigger even hit. Chavez has been giving away oil at cheap prices to his allies in the region plus loads of cash to whatever group support his revolution in Latin America. That is about to crash and burn due to the price drop. I would not be surprised to see food riots (and promptly quelled by force) next year in Venezuela.

    The prices are still ridiculous. I was buying on road diesel for .75 to .95 a gallon in 02 depending on the day and promo at the station. Ever since they passed that damn ultra low sulfur mandate the cost has been sky high. Diesel should never cost more than gas.
    I really believe that the cost of diesel drives inflation more than any thing else. At some point diesel is involved with everything you buy and that cost is passed on.
    Not to mention I noticed parts in contact with the fuel aren't lasting as long either...but that might just be me thinking that.

    Yup. Much of the world economy's spigot (via financing of working capital and loans) was shut off over the past 12mos. Unless that switch is turned back on, it's going to be bumpy indeed.
