An oversupply of crude in the midsection of the U.S. has sent gas prices below $3 a gallon here, but they're unlikely to stay there.

The speculators ran out of gimmicks to lie to us about the cost of gas. Give them a few months...they'll have a new batch of lies and I kind of hope we go over the fiscal cliff because if we don't, the speculators will think our consumer confidence will shoot up and we'll be paying $4+ dollars a gallon in a couple months.

Are these the same people that predicted gas would be $5.00/gal this year? The blind squirrel never found that nut.

Anyone else get sick of the gas price stories? Gas prices are what they are. We're going to pay it. If it causes you financial hardship or pain, change your lifestyle. Can we end this recycled story?

Gas would be around 1.75 a gallon today if Obama would open all of the drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico that have been shut down for the past 16 months. We have proven reserves for over 300 years, that does not include the oil in the rockies.
