I'm just thrilled how the price of gasoline has fallen. Not that the government helped. Bush begged OPEC to increase production, candidates proposed a Gas Tax holiday. A cry to regulate market speculators went up. Or how about get automakers to come up with electric cars? Nothing ever got done, all just talk.
It was us, the people. We enjoy "stay cations", use bikes or walk, carpool, combine trips. Billions less miles driven in 2008. Demand is down.We're buying less stuff made with petroleum.
Hopefully, we won't ever forget $4 gas, the pain at the pump. Don't get tricked into buying that truck or SUV. Don't let some bargain now rob you later. I love it. We the people, for the people, by the people.
