Now about $1.30/l here. Up about 10 cents over the last couple of weeks.

Standard news reporter interviews about how everybody is going to switch from their SUV to a econo car -- a fixture of every gas price increase.

It was 2.89.9 last night on then South side off KC. Worries me the economy could take another nose dive. At least the low gas prices will save me on driving out West today!

$3.12 for the last 2 days here.
I think it was at $2.95 for an afternoon recently, but I missed it. It was around $3.25 over the weekend.

$3.53 here. It will be going up once this tax, I mean transportation bill kicks in. Estimates are prices well rise by 28¢ or more.

This is the oil companies doing. They want Keystone XL passed so bad, they're will to lower prices & get the American public onboard.

See how much lower gas could get if it wasn't for those government restrictions!

Help us pass Keystone XL & our profits will go up twice as much!

I'm no economist, but the price for a barrel of crude is set by OPEC. Our piddly little American pipeline politics doesn't factor in. Besides, if any American lobbying could actually control gas prices, they'd do just the opposite; jack up prices to make people think that we need another source.

Fair enough.
