    The local station here was selling it for $1.55 on Friday. I haven't been to town since, but I would expect it is lower now, since it has been dropping daily. I wish I had some bigger storpage tanks, becuase I don't think this will last long. I suspect OPEC will cut production to get the price back up.

    Also, oil at current prices may not be worth producing, so the oil fields here in KS and in IL may stop pumping. The Canadian tar sands are very costly to process, so the future of that is questionable at these prices as well.

    We'll see.

    Still at a 1.95 to 2.16 here in good old upstate NY. The big joke is you will pay a lot more to get your gas on the thruway than about anywhere else. The tanker trucks pass these thruway stations to sell to the out of the way places and the thruway is much higher.

    Yes, gas is down to $1.67 gallon around here. The price still doesn't have a lot of people going out and joyriding. And that old chain e-mail about the price of gas a year ago making 2 $/gal. gas seem cheap aren't so farfetched now, are they?

    Was $1.74 here in Fayetteville last night when we went out. With that said, Ft Bragg is usually $0.02 cheaper. Won't know till I go back to work in the AM.

    But it's nice to think back to the days of 30/gallon, PLUS windshield washing PLUS oil check PLUS free drinking glass or other giveaway PLUS full service. All for a total fillup of about $4!

    Alas, them days is gone!
    Some other things about them Good old days

    1. Minimum wage- $1.25/hour
    2. Average weekly salary- $94.43

    That 1 dollar bill is the equivalent to about $7 today
    or $1 today was 14 cents then.

    See any corellation?

    I hate to ask, but what was the peak for AvGas, for the Cessna?
