"Crude has slumped about 8 percent over the last three trading sessions amid signs oil demand may be weaker than previously expected."

For many years retail prices have risen sharply around Memorial day. Maybe this time it's different.

I have mixed feelings about this decrease. While welcoming the decrease of prices at the pump, I must admit I don’t want anything to happen that could help the tin-horn dictator (that term used to be applied only to banana republics but, alas, is now appropriate here)stay in the White House.

It goes up 50 cents and drops back 30 cents and everyone is as happy as a ping in slop.

It's still costing me $74.00 for a fill-up for my car.

So, I'm supposed to do cartwheels that the pump price has gone down a few cents?

Folks are just going to go broke a little slower with the politically-motivated reduction in the price.
