The stronger dollar is the real news in this story. The crude dropping a few cents, not so much. However, I will take anything that may drop prices at the pump.

Now we would be happy at $3.00 when once it was $2.00. The only way to win, some, is with better MPG, but then price will just catch up as they will maintain the same profit margins and other costs will go up. There will be a good alternative and we will find it.

Less than a 1% drop and we've made the top five news?

We have become Big Brother upon ourselves. We want every bit of information we can access... and for what? What good can we make from this? Nothing. We are consumers. Not oil executives, producers, or refiners.

What is this world coming to?
