Filled up at $2.38 last night, and saw a couple stations at $2.25 today. I remember paying $1.86 September 2004, so at least temporarily we've nearly erased a decade of increases. My wallet is more than okay with that.
I'm spoiled. My commute to work is just over two miles, so I'm not into this low gas price stuff. The ARCOs, though, in my part of the San Fernando Valley, are all below $3.00. Lower prices are sure to come, following the price of oil.
When I was in Dubai earlier this year, gas was the equivalent to about $1.85 a gallon. A tour guide joked gas is cheaper than water. They try to encourage public transportation. Not to save gas but to reduce traffic congestion. Depending where you're at and the time, traffic can move at a crawl.
SecondGunman said: Got to Miami for vacation today. First station outside the airport was $3.89 with others in the area ranging from there down to $2.69. No joke, you could see a fifty cent drop in less han a block. There's a station near the orlando airport that charges over $5/gallon.the city forced them to post prices that can be seen from the road.

My portfolio also ran out of gas. I think I'll buy the new 2015 all electric Portfolio. I'll never need gas again!
Gas went up 11 centavos here today. Mike Thornbrugh, QuikTrip public affairs manager said: The increase is due to refineries announcing their annual turnaround times, which are periods lasting about a week long when they lower production in order to perform annual maintenance.
