This Texaco Station with all one price gas is located in Beverly,W.V.
I doubt if it stays that way for long. I will not be passing by that gas station again until next Tuesday.

Speedway lowered their gas to $2.89 last night. It's also $2.89 12 miles away, down the highway at another speedway. Oddly enough, the speedway in between these two lowered their gas to $2.95 from $2.99 yesterday. Guess it's more expensive to ship the gas 6 miles than the 12 miles. It's a truck stop, ppl are more likely to stop, go figure. That's definately more than a penny profit.

Nora, your area must just be higher. But it looks like yours came down a little bit, since you went from $3.34 to $3.29.

I tanked up Thursday night when my Wawa went to $3.19. Then yesterday several gas stations from Paoli to Exton all went down to $3.09, while other stations right across from them still had prices of $3.31 to as much as $3.42!

When I got gas, someone told me it was 15-19 cents less in Lancaster County, which surprised me as gas was usually more expensive out there.

On Monday, all of our stations were charging 3.59 for regular. It has been going down a little more every day since then. Last night I got half a tank for 2.87 per gallon. I never thought I'd think that price was a "bargain"!!!!!

Were finally down to $2.98 here. Hopefully things will get better and the price will go down some more.

I have this vision of the price going back below $2 per gal, and everyone out dancing in the streets....Too funny

I'm not asleep....I'm checking for light leaks! :)

I paid 2.99 when I filled up last week, but I passed a grocery store today that was at 2.69. Guess where I am going to fill up Monday?

Today my husband and I went to look at new cars on the Ford lot. One of the huge, gas guzzling SUV's was parked on the lot with the KEY IN THE DOOR! I tried it and was able to unlock the car and open the door. I was certain a poor salesman had forgotten about it, so I dropped it in the night key slot. Then my husband and I both thought the same thing- perhaps they had left the key in it, hoping it would be stolen, so the dealership could get some $$ for it. They certainly aren't SELLING any of them!

I don't want to get political...but did you know that CITGO is owned by the Venezuelan government. And they are anything but on our side when it comes to gasoline!

Actually, Venezuela's President offered discounted gas, food, water, and free eye surgery to those affected by Hurricane Katrina. All this even after Pat Robertson said he should be assassinated! Much kinder than I would have been after such an irresponsible comment.

All aid offers from other countries usually come with strings attached. One of the reasons why the US is so great in giving/helping other nations. It furthers trade opportunities as well as political involvement (stirring things into the 'right' direction). I'm sure the Venezuelan President expected acceptance of his politics and some trade opportunities. That's why he heard such a nice "Thanks, but no thanks!" from the US government. That's also why all aid offers have been carefully reviewed by the government before accepting/rejecting them, even from countries the US is friendly with.

Just read an article on MSN about telling Cuba "Thanks but no Thanks" on sending help for Katrina victims, wonder if that's based on the same idea.

Although I love my car I'd also love to be able to walk or ride my bike to work, unfortunately the roads I'd be on for 1/2 the trip are just too dangerous. Shame we can't put in more bike lanes and rely less on cars/gas, just think how much healthier this country would be if people walked or biked more and drove less.

I know we offered aid to Cuba when they were hit by hurricane and they turned us down so maybe that is the reason.
