    Went to town today

    Did our usual grocery shopping at Safeway we had built up to $ .50 qallon off on gas & needed to fill up. I always carry a gas can when I know I'll be getting gas becauase they allow you up to 25 gallons at the reduced price & my tank holds 27 gallons I usually fill up at a 1/4 of a tank & put the rest in the gas can around 5 gallons. We paid $1.69 9 a gallon today.

    I had .80 discount at Stop and Shop - got gas at $1.49 9

    Thanks for the tip on the gas cans - I should do that.

    Was $1.68 here today, had an $.80 discount the other day on top of that. Now if prices would just drop back down on ammo...

    Price is going back up here in NE Ohio. Paid $1.82 last Monday. It's $1.99 today. Price of crude is still going down, so no reason for the increase that I can see. Go Figure...

    BTW, Pennsylvania's gas taxes are 40˘ per gallon higher than Ohio's. Seeing a lot of PA license plates here, just across the state line.

    We're hovering between $1.65 and $1.70 at most places in Albuquerque.

    I thought prices were going to be up forever. This is a good sign.

    It will let people pend a lot more money in their local economy on lunches, and kids toys, etc...

    But if the price of cigarettes magically drops back to 25 cents a pack, I'm going to start wondering if there is not some magic wizard behind the curtain controlling these prices.

    I just hope this isn't the start of a depression.

    Just my thoughts but I think that the high price of fuel causing all other prices accross the board to go up brought on the recession the could turn into a depression.

    I have read that low fuel prices could be an indicator of an oncomming depression.
