We saw $2.07 in Texarkana and I heard this morning on Talk Radio that it's under $2 in Ohio.

Oh, and BigMike, your poll didn't specify WHERE they would reach $2/gall. Somewhere in the US is likely, CA... probably not.

Yeah, that is a good point. It is always expensive in CA, especially in the Central Valley here..

But at least gas has come down to $2.49 !! That is a drop of 14 cents in one week, or 2 cents/day. If this rate continues, I'll be pumping $2 gas by Oct 21st. Hey, that'll mean more runs to the Corn Field Maze for Holloween :thumbs: :yupyup:

Hey check this out, this is a gas price chart for the previous 3-years.

If the trend continues, then the prices will keep dropping until early December, which is a good 70 days from now. That means that my chances are good that I might see $2 a gallon for the first time in two years :thumbs:

That's pretty cool! Did you hear that Chevron is going to try to continuing drilling for oil shale?

"Thirty years after quitting one of the nation's most promising yet costly energy resources, Chevron Corp. wants to take another crack at unlocking shale oil from difficult rock formations in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming."

My oppinion on cheap fuel is don't run it. Paying a little more for the good stuff is better for your engine in the long run  :twocents:

The worse gas milage I got on my recent trip to Oklahoma was with Loves fuel. The best milage was 76, 66 and Conoco. 

Sorry Glenn, I was limited on time. I thought about ya though.

Fast forward to 2008.

We just hit $4 a gallon here in Fresno today (for premium, it won't be too much longer until regular grade is also $4/gal)

Shell Station, 5650 N Figarden Dr & W Bullard Ave, Fresno, CA $4.05 Premium Grade
