assuming 1 year predictions, this one is WAY out in front at the halfway mark!
Bowtieguy, I'm sure happy they dropped considerably faster than I predicted. I'm saving a lot of money. Keep in mind, I made that prediction back in May I think and gas was over 4$/gal. Most people were predicting it would go higher, including the head of GM. I have zero respect for that guys opinion.
I predict I just paid $1.68.9 for unleaded in Kentucky (just across the river from WV). Still $1.99 here in Charleston, but with a 20 gallon tank I saved about $6 on the fillup (REALLY on fumes). That is 3.55 gallons of gas FREE at those prices! I use Speedway (good gas at some stations, bad at others) - got extra points on Speedway rewards card by buying $50 gas card at a time, plus the regular points on the card.
I have more than enough points for a 50 cents per gallon discount - will use that next time and get gasoline for $1.189 a gallon!!!! Will use ALL 50 gallons - make sure me, wife and mother-in-law fillup all 3 vehicles on Turkey Day.

Yeah, he'll learn, but at what expense to our economy? This is not the time or place for on the job training.
Then again, ALL presidents go through 'on the job training'. Lets face it, there isn't exactly a class out there on how to be president or a 'Being US President For Dummies' book out there. And I don't care how many decades someone has been a senator (or held any other office). There really isn't ANYTHING out there that would REALLY prepare ANYONE for the presidency. It's a learning experience for ANYONE who takes the office.
BTW KU40, I believe the evil crack was tongue in cheek.
it was indeed!
it's interesting how blame is put on certain individuals and/or corporations who often times have nothing to do with the source or cause. ie gas prices are high because the oil companies are greedy, evil, to blame, etc.
if one were to blame Bush or big oil, for example, when fuel prices were high...
why do they not get the credit when prices come down?
