Just a head's up to those who might not have noticed!!

Gas prices have dropped dramatically, especially in the middle of the US. Checkout Gasbuddy.com. I have just last night changed plans and added days and miles to a previously scheduled trip. Let's hit the road. Looks like fuel prices should continue to fall for the forseable future. Happy traveling!

As was said, the price of a barrel of crude was up several dollars Friday. Yesterday the local paper said gas is going up 30 cents/gallon.
I predict before July 4th.

Didn't we hear early on that gas prices would be more than $5.00 this summer? and now we're hearing it again...

Don't look now, but crude oil prices just took a 6.8% increase on Friday. No flimsy reason just went up, even though consumption is down and supplies are at an all time high.

Prices of oil recently went down when Europe was seeming to fall apart, and some countries in the Far East and South America were facing economic difficulties. And, of course, we in the US have had our problems. All these things would and do affect the demand side of oil usage, and thus prices.

Last week, there was optimism that the latest banking moves in Europe will help things. If so,then perhaps their economy won't take as hard a hit, and demand may not moderate. So, prices of oil have begun to rise.

Like it or not, we live in a worldwide economy, and things happening across the globe affect us, and vice versa.
