Do you remember that last time you paid less than $2 a gallon for gas?

Do you remember that last time you paid less than $2 a gallon for gas?  It's a hard thing to do since it has been too long ago.  Now gas prices in some cities here in Eastern Carolina have hit that milestone.  Yippie!

I drive about 90 miles a day for work so I'm like many here in the East who watch gasoline prices daily.  Yesterday I filled up my car (which gets 34 mpg highway) for $31.00.  I thought...what a bargain!  That was at $2.06 a gallon, so it will likely fall to below $30 to fill up the next time.

Another price I watch these days is the price of crude oil.  As I write this the price stands at $55 a barrel, and some experts say that could fall below $50...even to the $40 mark.  That's all great news as I don't think anyone would argue that the price of gasoline was overpriced this summer.  Now lets hope prices finally stabilize.
