UPDATED: How About Those Gasoline Prices? - The Dream Has Almost Come True!

Since my last post on this topic on November 2, the price of gasoline has continued to drop. If you recall, in the dream I had this past August, the price of regular unleaded had fallen to $1.75. At the time, and until quite recently, I thought there was absolutely no chance of my dream coming true.

Well, I am happy to report that as of yesterday morning, the price of regular unleaded gasoline at the BP station at the corner of Woodbury Road and South Oyster Bay Road has dropped to 1.99 per gallon. The price need only drop another 24 cents per gallon for the dream to be realized. We shall see.

UPDATE: As of December 12, the price of regular unleaded has fallen to $1.89 per gallon. Just 14 more cents to go for the dream to come true!

Dude, the price right this minute here in Southwest Michigan is $1.55!

It was $4.69 last Summer. I have been able to buy groceries for a few weeks now. It's so nice to be able to eat again.

It doesn't hardly seem to matter anymore anyway, when people are out of a job here in Michigan. We hardly go anywhere.

Hi Tina. That's the downside to the drop in prices. The damage has already been done. It's like giving free giant flat screen tvs to people who can no longer afford to pay for cable. The low prices are also a reflection of the economic downturn in this country. With a lot of businesses closed and workers laid off, the demand for gasoline has gone down.

I thought there was a downside to the price drop, but I just didn't figure it out...

You want to jump for joy, but that's really depressing.

In Jersey it's about 1.58 or so... unbelievable! It's helping me out since I drive a Ford Truck, but as tina FCD says - it matters not to those who don't have a job - but it doesn't hurt either.

Down to 1.87 now. 12 cents to go!
