I wonder if any of the moderators can tell how many total posts per month there are?? So you think that during the height of the higher prices, there was more posting. Interesting. I'll bet you are right.

Also, as to cheaper gas, I personally do not drive any different (I mean in a wasteful manner) just because it is cheaper. I don't think you should waste any resourse. That is just my opinion.

May, June, and July were about twice as much traffic as the rest of the year.

LOL, that's actually a good point. Spam has been almost non-existent in the past couple months, I've had this itchy trigger finger ever since becoming a moderator and I've only been able to shoot down a few.

I've run a couple of reports, I'll post some charts once I get them cleaned up and uploaded to Photobucket.

EDIT: Here it is... I've removed the actual numerical data, but the chart gives you an idea of what was going on in the grand scheme of things. These are for Jan 01, 2008 12:00 AM until Dec 16, 2008 9:15 PM Eastern time.

The first one is new posts, and the second is new members registered.

I wonder if the recent OPEC production cuts will affect gas prices much in the future?
http://biz.yahoo.com/ap/081217/af_opec_meeting.html

Perhaps there will be an upswing in membership too? It'll be interesting to see if there's a consistant trend.

This might be a good time to buy a cheap economy car; prices are low since gas is cheap and the economy is down.

30mpg is pretty respectable, and I bet you didn't pay as much for it as you would for another brand.

My thoughts exactly, and talk them down with fuel prices.
