    Gasoline prices have not yet declined, though experts say they have probably peaked and will begin falling in the next few days — probably in time for the Memorial Day weekend.

    Thought it was something Republicans should know, just in time for the next debate.

    They are "master debators".

    Good news

    It would be nice if gas prices were cut as fast as they were raised

    I think they are better with "what not" than with "numbers".

    ...and go drill yourself an oil well, or buy a gas station.

    Then get back to us with your postulative bullshit.

    Yeah I have noticed that on news of climbing prices the local stations have to jack up prices THAT DAY or the next.

    But on falling prices we often see a time lag between a falling price of oil per barrel and the cost of petro.

    I don't blame the local stations or fuel providers for this, but I cannot help but wonder how that happens.
