Don't worry. Our gas prices are still ridiculous here in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. Every Summer, when I drive up to Montana, they drop more the further away I get from here and the closer I get to Lewistown MT. A few months ago, they peaked at about $6.15/gallon for regular, even at my "discount" gas station. Then they started dropping. When the price of regular hit $5.45 on the way down, I was happy, though I did the math and realized my standard of living would not change because it would cost about $15 less to fill up my 30 gallon tank. I think I last write about gas prices here when regular was down to around $5.00/gallon at my station. Maybe I'll check after I post this. In any case, it was down to $4.85 three days ago, and only $4.79 yesterday. I decided to top off my tank yesterday. Why not? I'm off to pick up some groceries. I doubt gas prices here have dropped any further, but I'll add to this post if anything has changed. Are gas prices going down where you live?

I didn't stop to get gas today but we did look at the prices as we came home from Springfield. The further away from the big city we got, the cheaper the prices at the pump seemed to be. I will need to fill the tank tomorrow. We had 1/8th of a tank when we reached home. Gas was at $2.95/gallon here in our city. We were too tired to think about stopping to fill up the tank when we passed the station.
