    Someone in my area told me the other day that gas prices will be going down~
    So I googled it....sure as shit I did, and I read where some places are saying that by mid-June, gas prices could go down by 50 cents.
    So....somewhere, somebody is fucking lying.
    Right now where I live, I pay $3.69 per gallon~
