Gas Prices – the “1” watch

Over the last few weeks, gas prices have been dropping like a rock. I’m paying a full dollar/gallon less now than I paid about 3 1/2 weeks ago. All of the stations in the little town I live in are currently sitting at $2.19, and they seem to drop the price a little more every few days. So…what I’m looking for now…is for the 2 to go away. I’m looking for the first gas station to drop below $2/gallon.

Interestingly, in talking to friends from around the country…none of them are even close to this price. Most are at least 30 cents/gallon higher

  2. Yep…been seeing it under $2 all over the place now…not in Rogers, but at several places in Osseo and Brooklyn Park that I drive through on the way to my current client location. Saw it as low as $1.93 last week…although I saw a news segment the other night about a place in Roseville that was at $1.85.

    And Tim…congrats on Jadalyn…you and Anne beat us by a few days…we didn’t miss being in the hospital at the same time by very much at all.
