    It is amazing how people are so happy that gas is down a half-cent over last week when recently we had 7 cent upwards movement in a single day. The best way to show these gas companies that America is sick of the rising prices is to drive less, lowering demand and pinching their profits. Gas companies are profiting in the billions, our government is giving them subsidies and our families are suffering hardships because the costs are affecting our household finances. Where is the logic in any of that?

    I agree people are driving less, but just didn't see the panic selling of SUVs and big pick-ups that accompanied the first $4 a gallon scare a couple of years ago. I think people get used to a price point and are actually thanksful to trend back toward a leveml they would've freaked out about not that long ago. Bottom line is the rich will get richer!

    I know, half a penny down, it's $3.99 and people are happy again :-) Gas is cheap again - yay! Next stop $4.99 in a few months... Can't wait for my LEAF... I even signed for that crappy electric from Mitsubishi in 2013 :-) F-em, all of them...

    My car takes premium so I will take any savings I can get. Diesel sound like good alternatives. I dont know if I am ready for the switch to electric just yet. The technology needs to be refined for me to jump on that boat.

    Now that these oil companies have all this money they should be repairing the refineries now. While the demand is low and don't pull that crap on us like you did in the 80's&90's.
