The price of gas has actually dropped. A few weeks ago I made a thread about the gas jumping up a good deal due to speculation of the Hurricane possible causing damage. But when it was determined that the Hurricane did not cause the damage (for the gas industry) the price only went down a few pennies after a large jump. However it finally went down to the price it was prior to the jump and not only that it has now went down 20 more cents from that price due to this economic mess. So...I guess in some odd way there is a silver lining to this cloud, and let's face it, this has been a real crap storm with the bail out and the mess so I will take any bit of good news/silver lining I can get right now.
