Spotted gas price at $2.19/gallon yesterday here in...

...the DFW Mid-Cities. In Hurst, TX, at the QT at the corner of Airport Frwy & Precinct Line Rd gas was $2.19 per gallon at 5:30pm. Haven't been by there today so don't know if it's changed.

I'm just sorry I already had a full tank!

Gas price check! What's the price of gas where you live and how much has it come down?

3. Lucky ducks! We're still at 2.78

 

I can't wait till it is under 2 bucks. Actually I remember the incredible 90's when it was 90 cents a gallon. I really hope we go back to that. Talk about a raise for the poor and working class.

8. Cheapest gas I could find in San Luis Obispo was 2.99 a gal.

Yet, it was the lowest in years so I filled up my tank.

6. Low gas prices are good for those on tight budgets.

Every dollar saved on gas is a dollar spent on food, clothes, etc.

7. Not a good thing for the planet, but an immediate good thing for every cash-strapped consumer.

 

Every penny the price drops stays in my pocket and doesn't go to the oil companies.

Yeah, there's a contradiction.

14. Kinda fucked, ain't it? We literally cannot survive without the very resource that is killing us!

 

That's pretty fucking fucked up, ain't it?

Anyway, in response to your post: What would be your solution? What would you have us do?

Meanwhile, as GG and CG say above, the less gas costs, the more people who need the money for other purposes have for those purposes. Maybe they can actually pay the electric bill? Maybe they can have enough gas to get to the promising job interview? Maybe they can pay off an outstanding debt? Maybe they can fill that prescription they've gone a week without?

Shit! I don't know how it's a good thing. I do know this: It's ALL pretty fucked up!

9. $2.83 here in San Bernardino County - lower than L.A. County.

It's been pretty much under $3 for about a month now. I haven't seen it this low since President Clinton was in office!

18. What spurred me to this OP is that Alex Witt just reported the cheapest gas is in

 

Missouri ($2.46). It made me think about the big ole $2.19 on the price sign at the QT last evening as I passed by on Airport Frwy.

Boy, did she get that report wrong. Texas was not even mentioned in the top 3 for lowest price per gallon. But we all know bad reporting (or outright lying) is now standard for TeeVee "news".

26. I think it's rather ironic that there seems to have been (and will be) just enough petroleum fuel in

 

the ground to give us the rope we need to hang ourselves - writ: make ourselves extinct or at least endangered.

Wow!!! There really is a God!

27. In a sane country, we'd institute a minimum gas price (say $4/gal)

Adjusted for inflation, of course, over the years.

Any time the price falls below this, the difference goes into an environmental fund to reduce carbon emissions.

Or, we could just tax the fuck out of it like they do in Europe and Asia.

Either way, build more mass transit and kill the urge to drive gas guzzlers on superfluous trips.

29. $2.79 in the Lehigh Valley, PA

That's b/c Pennsylvania has an exorbitant gas tax that was hike by $.10 a gallon in January, 2014.
