    The price per gallon of gas I found last night. For the first time in years, the price is actually lower than it was one year ago. (I remember rushing to fill up with $2.49 the night after Katrina before the price spiked.)

    Just in time for the congressional campaigns.

    Well, so much for the $4 a gallon gas predicted last month by this time.

    UPDATE: Went down a penny.

    Your avatar continues to scar me. Every time I see ol' Johnny Wang over there, it takes me back to that early morning OTR's-wife-looks-at-the-PC-at-the-wrong-time incident.

    The summer rape is over . . .

    . . . and any speculators who were climbing up the tape, trying to provoke the $80/gal spike, can eat shit,
    for the time being.

    Enjoy it, while it lasts.

    $2.47? Fucking awesome! Consume, baby, consume!

    Excuse me while I write thank you note to OPEC, the big oil companies, George W. Bush and the state of Texas.

    It's a welcome sight that the price is creeping back down, but two things still scare/piss me off:
    1) It's annoying as hell that I'm getting excited about gas at $2.50 a gallon. We live in the greatest country in the world. I don't ask much from my government, except to keep people from blowing me up on my daily commute and to keep gas at a reasonable price. You're 0-for-2 there, Dubya.
    2) There's still the lingering feeling that we're one Ahminadjad (still can't spell that fucker's name) rant away from a 25- or 50-cent price hike. I can see it now:
    Waiter at Tehran Starbucks: Here's your latte grande, Mr. President.
    Ahmenidjad: Latte!? I ordered a cappucino, you western capitalist pig! Off with your head! And cut off the flow of oil to the U.S.! If I'm paying $5 for a cup of coffee, they're paying $5 for a gallon of gas! Ha Ha!

    I can't believe we're celebrating "cheap" $2.47 gas.

    How regularly are you blown up on your commute? Daily? Only one way? Do you do sports for the Falluja Herald?

    I haven't been overseas for a little while admittedly, but which country has better gas prices than we do?
