    Not sure if it's really "good" because of the reasons this is happening but it looks like the price of gas just might be going down........we'll see. Forgive me for being skeptical.

    Why would you be skeptical?

    It's sort of clever to get us conditioned to paying $4 per gallon, and then when it goes down 50 cents we get all happy and excited.:lol:

    The falling of gas prices has nothing to do with a crackdown on speculation. They are just going back to the point they were at before bad stuff started happening.
    $3.30-$3.50 for gas seems to be the norm for right now. It goes higher when shit goes wrong in the middle east. In the last year the only times it has gone higher was during the Arab spring, and when Iran started rattling its saber around.

    Many years ago when gas was 50 cents a gallon, a 10% increase hardly made the newspapers. Today it's a subject of national debate.

    It's similar to the "boiling frog" anecdote. Dump a frog in boiling water and he will jump out but put in in cold water and gradually turn up the heat and he won't notice. Guess who the frogs are.
