    The good news is, with my Toyota Corolla back up to 35 MPG and gas at typically $1.80/gal., I could now drive from Washington DC to Los Angeles California for about $140. The bad news is, I don't have any reason to do so.

    Health care turned out to be a scam. If I signed up for Obama Scare that would cost me about 320 a month. Affordable. Yea right.

    Maybe not LA, but Yosemite would be a good reason.

    And the penalties for not have big insurance are now through the roof. Don't get me started. In paying three times the rate I was and in Los Angeles gas isn't that cheap.

    All the national parks on the trip across the country. It's a great idea for everyone.

    Your one of the lucky ones at 320 a month. I have a daughter in Houston paying 600 month and makes 55K a year with tips as a dog groomer. Its not affordable at all.

    Near my house, in Campbell Ca, gas is $2.43. Have not seen it lower than $2.39.

    I sure wish I was a dog groomer making $55K a year with tips while being forced to pay $7,200 a year for insurance.

    $1.29 for the ethanol adulterated gas at the Shell station at Air Depot Blvd & SE 29th St. in Midwest City (and various other locations).

    I'll fill up on the way home from work today but I expect to pay more like $1.40 for pure gas at an OnCue Express.

    Why did her get such an expensive insurance plan?

    $1.49 a gallon at the local Chevron and Shell stations.
    Oil popped up 9% Friday in the market and I expect gasoline will follow it up.

    And now oil is back down 5%. I am not even trying to forecast where it will go and am just enjoying low prices while I can
