How are the Democrats responsible for that? There's not that much tax difference.

Who you can really thank is the owners of gas guzzling hogs, and coal plants, that pollute Chicagoland skies and force us to use a more expensive, less-polluting, grade of gas.

Using CROCKOFTERRYBJORK'S logic means Chicago must bethe only city with gas guzzling hogs.I don't see all the coal plants he is talking about perhaps he can point those out in Chicago.


Escape the city and county which are run by the overspend and taxing DEMOCRATIC party and your gas is cheaper.

Down to $2.59 here, and dropping roughly 3 cents a day. Heard the experts on CNBC yesterday saying $50 oil was possible although not likely to stay level there....BOY would that be good for people. If it would just stay at $65 gas would likely be $2 a gallon....much needed everyday relief. Diesel is another key, for food prices especially. if it costs half as much to transport, the prices will surely go down. thumbs up

OPEC is meeting very soon to stabilize crude prices. I doubt if it will get to $50/bbl.

The market makers are talking about stabilization at $80/bbl.

Yeah, I saw that, too, but OPEC is stabilizing production because demand is ALREADY way down.Their production isn't really that high at all right now and the Suadi's certainly want to make sure we buy THEIR oil and not get it from other cheaper places.
        If no speculators are allowed back into the market as was talked about this summer when they artificially inflated the prices, then they should very easily stabilize in the 75-80 area. That would be very good  for all of us.

Never had a problem at the station using my credit card at the pump.Lines are about the same at all the stations within a mile of the IL border.Stations are are filled with IL residents filling up.Add in all the cigarettes and liquor being bought up at some locatiuons and yes you will have some lines.

There are plenty of liquor stores convenientlly located next to gas stations.

Exit the Chicago Skyway on Indpls Blvd and in less than a mile you will see about 100 gas pumps(48 at one location) and 3-4 Liquor Stores within 150 feet of a gas station.

doesn't matter about O-PECKERS cutting production 10%.

what matters is the futures market trading....and with that said it is going right back to 50 bucks a barrel where it started it's rally. everone who bought futures and options the last 2 months lost their butt.

recession equals....lower prices. right now they could sell the gas 50 cents a gallon cheaper than they are. stations are still making plenty of money because the margins are so great. that is why the gas stations drop the price at any given station 5 to 8 times a week even if they only get one delivery a week. i seen some stations drop the price 10 or more times in one week.

plus, wasn't the so called experts saying a couple months ago oil was going to 200 dollars a barrel.

i am not sure what gas was at when it was at 80 dollars a barrel last year but, i know it was cheaper than todays prices overall.

OPEC controls 40% of the world's oil, so it is a BIG DEAL when they say they are cutting production. The futures traders base their pricing in a large part on what OPEC does.

and we import more oil from CANADA and MEXICO than saudi arabia

and we have the largest consumption of gas of any nation on the planet.

this is a b.s. ploy by the saudi's to keep the money flowing.

take it to the bank....oil is going to 50 dollars a barrel >>>>>> no matter what anyone says.

consumption will finally dictate the price. we are in the middle of a recession and consumption is way down and will stay that way for awhile. supplies will grow and prices will have to go down further.

if you are paying 3.99 a gallon where you live it must be the highest in the nation.

northern washington state.......3.02 a gallon
northern california..... 3.11 a gallon
around northfield park.....2.72 a gallon

national average is about 2.60 a gallon as of four days ago.
