    The price of gas finally dropped form over 3.70. It is around 3.40 now and lower for regular. Can not get mid grade they aren't receiving any it seems. ( 89 octane) So we have 87 Octane and 93 Octane.

    Personally I don't like driving on 87 for long, car starts knocking. But I sure don't want to pay almost 20 cents more for 93. Not a big problem yet since I don't drive very much.

    Here in Indy it's $2.72 believe it or not. I don't know if I'll wake up tomorrow and it will be $3.72, then the next day $4.15. It seems to go up and down, up and down like Pamala Lee Anderson without a bra.

    With a 50 mile round trip commute to work I'm hoping it stays in the two dollar and something range.
