Gas Prices *FINALLY* on the Decline

And it is about time. As recently as 2 weeks ago, I paid $2.17 a gallon to fill up my car. I have a great, gas-efficient older model BMW, but even that did little to help the fact that a huge chunk of my paycheck was going towards keeping Citgo and BP in Armani. I know, I know, take the train or bus, blah blah blah, killing the world, fumes, blah blah blah. Truth be told, I am usually very concientous of being environmentally conservative and did nothing but use public transportation for the last 4 years to get everywhere. But my job now requires a commute, so a gas-guzzling I go.

So you can image that I nearly shit myself when I found a gas station in the suburbs this weekend with regular unleaded for $1.79 a gallon!!! $1.79. That’s hottt. I wish my car had 50 reserve tanks so I could have stocked up. But it turns out that gas prices are on a national decline, which may be the greatest trend since slap bracelets. Even better, keeps an updated and current list of all the gas stations in the city and surrounding areas so you can make sure to only get bent over a little bit next time that needle appraches “E”.

    Hydrogen is going to have to be the fuel of the future as it is obvious that there is a finite supply of gas and it is going to be depleted some time sooner or later but it will dwindle. Hence, prices soaring. Big oil will not concede this, however, water using hydrogen is a legitimate player for the future and when one sends electricity through it and causes a ionic charge, fuel can be expended. I have put a pg. together for anyone who wants to fight the gas bite to apply for these cash back or rebate back cards as they are very ‘in’ right now due to the oil gouging. Gas Card

    I hope people can apply, use the card(s) religiously and get back the money that has been ripped out of their wallets.
