    Default Gas prices drop 15 cents in 2 weeks: survey

    Keep on dropping!!!!



    Gas prices drop 15 cents in 2 weeks: survey
    Gas supplies and a softening in crude oil prices lead to largest drop in nearly a year.
    August 27 2006: 9:16 PM EDT


    (CNN) -- Gas prices tumbled more than 15 cents during the past two weeks, to $2.87 per gallon of self-serve regular, a national survey said Sunday.

    Trilby Lundberg, publisher of the "Lundberg Survey," attributed the 15.42-cent drop in surveys performed on August 25 and August 11 to "more than sufficient gasoline supply" and a modest softening in crude oil prices in recent days.

    "It's the largest drop since last September, when the country was coming off gasoline shortages caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita," said Lundberg, whose survey tallies prices every two to three weeks at about 5,000 gas stations in all 50 states.

    Historically high prices had already slowed or halted the growth in demand for gasoline, she said.

    Demand will drop further next month, she predicted, as Americans finish their summer vacations.

    She predicted further price drops "if there is no new threat to oil supply, let alone any hurricane damage to refineries."

    Gasoline stocks, imports and use of refining capacity are all up, she said.

    Drivers in Des Moines paid the least, at $2.60 per gallon; drivers in Honolulu the most, at $3.23. Chicago led the Lower 48, at $3.20.

    Here are some other cities:

    Atlanta: $2.73

    Boise, Idaho: $2.99

    Boston: $2.91

    Dallas: $2.72

    Portland, Ore.: $2.91

    I'm not gonna get too excited - I figure they'll find some excuse to jack 'em back up in a week or two (Ernesto, anyone?). If they ever drop below $2 again, then maybe I'll pay attention!

    "Suck a fat one, faggot."
    -MikeL, showing off that sharp wit of his.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    Does anyone seriously expect prices to drop much? It ain't like there is an infinite supply...
