There's the old addage that fuel prices shoot up like a rocket and float down like a feather.

Certainly true now....Some places around here (Sacramento) still at $3.99. Others are lower in the $3.80's...

Prepare to see more astronomical profits from the big refineries, Exxon, Shell, Valero. They think we'll be happy with anything under $4. Those 3 or 4 companies will soon be worth more money than Americas gross national product.

I see the DJIA dropped another 650+ points today... Opec is holding an emergency meeting due to falling oil prices too.

yeah.. They say they have to use the rest of the "expensive" oil before they can lower prices at the pump which some say is a 2 week supply at refineries, but it is funny when the price per barrel goes up pump prices go up overnight as well...

We're still paying 3.99-4.49 for diesel here.

You guys have it good. I am paying $5.64 a gallon in Alberta, and we are the largest supplier of oil, and gas to Canada, and the U.S.A. We also pay more than the national average in our province and we have the majority of the oil , and gas , and refineries. Go figure.
