Yeah It is $2.03 in some spots and $2.06 in others. A buddy of mine said Downtown Cincy there was a little corner mart that had gas for $1.98! I work for a company that deals with commodities and options trading for the market so if you want to know what gas and oil are doing I will let you know. That way if it is dropping I can give you the heads up.

Gas at $1.15 ??

Why $1.15 gas isn’t a fantasy

Sure, it sounds far-fetched, but the pieces are starting to fall into place for what could be a dramatic drop in oil prices over the next few years.

More Remember when you paid $1.15 a gallon for gasoline?

You could be paying it again. Maybe not this year, but perhaps in the next few years.

Sure, oil experts say there's little excess refining capacity. Oil reserves are stretched. Oil consumption is soaring in China and India.

But things are starting to change. Drivers are changing their habits. Global tensions are easing, and more supply is on its way.

Crude oil zoomed to nearly $80 a barrel this summer as traders fretted about waning supplies and two big potential problems: tensions over Iran's nuclear research program and Katrina-style hurricanes threatening oil production in the Gulf of Mexico.

To keep prices moving ever higher, traders needed -- and frequently got -- a steady stream of bad news. "It was like you needed a fifth of booze a day to keep the buzz going," says Peter Beutel of Cameron Hanover, a Connecticut energy consulting firm.

But prices began falling a month ago when it became clear hurricane season wouldn't be anything like last year. Oil traders have come to sense, too, that all the saber rattling over Iran was dissipating. "We got everyone leaning the wrong way," Beutel said.

(In fact, a big hedge fund was forced to tell its investors this week that it would be taking a huge loss because it bet the wrong way on natural gas.) .........................

The reason gas is falling is cause the Saudis and other OPEC producers are scared shitless the closer we move towards alternative fuels. Remember in the early 1990's when GM came out with the all electric car? Well OPEC pushed the price of oil down to $10 when they realized itwas a decent car. I still think the powers at GM were paid off to kill that technology....it just dissapeared :lol:
I just read an article, actually a Q&A commentary, that says that neither the US nor OPEC has any real control over the price of oil.

Being a totally global commodity now, the price is based solely on the whims of global buyers and sellers.
