Oooh, look at those gas prices!!

I drove past an Arco station this morning and was absolutely floored by the gas prices! The premium grade gas was only $2.99 and 9/10 cent per gallon!! That's about 30 cents lower than the beginning of summer. Is this just a function of summer (and road trip season) coming to a close? I haven't seen those kinds of prices since I was in The Dark Place (June 2000-December 2002; mid-west--almost).

[edit] Okay, I just read what I wrote and thought, "What?! $2.99 a gallon?? Is that supposed to be a favor to us or something??" Does anyone remember the 99cent Fridays that Arco used to have?? Those were the days. This almost makes me want to go environmental, but really, I'm not INSANE...

I wonder what prices others are paying for gas these days?

i dunno, but gen x was promised a lot of things that apparently have been back-shelved (e.g., hovercrafts running off sunshine, six flags on mars, etc.). kinda makes me sad to think of where we are, here in--and i can't believe i'm writing this--the year 2007. okay, so we've yet to see water powered engines, but three buck per gallon of gasoline? three bucks per gallon! they say in venezuela that gas is cheaper than water (whatever that's supposed to mean). now, i'm just as much a capitalist-imperialist as the next guy, but methinks our own oil companies just *might* be screwing us. i guess promises were indeed made to be broken.
