    It was announced on the radio that gas prices may plummet 50 cents in the next couple weeks due to blend change from summer to winter....That could make a difference in the Economic outlook...

    Of course not, but consumer confidence is tied closely to fuel prices.

    In a hurry? How do announced something that might happen in the future? Fifty cents per gallon would be nice but it still would not bring it nearly back to the point it was when O-blame-a took office.

    I guess news gets to you by Pony Express. It was announced everywhere else days ago. It had to do with refineries being back on line as well as other issues. Just one example...

    Does it not occur to you that it's a problem when government regulations are what is driving the ridiculous prices in the first place?

    Seems like as long as I can remember - whether it was a Democrat or Republican in the White House - gas prices always drop just before the election!
