Pump prices are falling
Fuel Fix ^ | September 23, 2013 | Zain Shauk

Gasoline prices are at their lowest level since early July and are expected to fall further, according to an analysis from GasBuddy.com.

The national average for a gallon of regular is $3.47, down 34 cents from a year ago, according to AAA.

The average price for a gallon of regular in Houston is $3.23, down 37 cents from a year ago, according to AAA data.

Because refineries are running at high rates and consumer demand likely will be down from last year, prices will continue a gradual decline, GasBuddy.com Chief Oil Analyst Tom Kloza said in an email.

Several refuelling stations in Houston are currently offering gasoline for less than $3 a gallon, according to data on GasBuddy.com.

The falling prices for U.S. gasoline is coming as oil prices remain high, above $103 a barrel on Monday for West Texas Intermediate domestic crude.

If oil prices fall, that will push gasoline prices even lower, Kloza said.

Maybe Pennsylvania didn’t get the memo? Haven’t noticed. I’m sure it will be back up to $4 again when Obama finds out. I was talking to someone who just got back from Ireland. The gas there is the equivalent of $12/gallon! That is our future if we let these lunatics continue to occupy our government!

Too bad it’s a relatively quiet hurricane season this year....

As the Obama economy continues to faulter, and people have no need to travel to work, or can afford to travel to shop, there will be less demand for gas and prices will fall even more.

The 2.99 gas in Texas is indicative of the economic downturn.

Yes - I had $3.21 in Denton, TX Sunday. I’m not very knowledgeable about the fuel industry, but seem to recall that refiners are required to make different fuels for winter months. If so, and I hate to be negative, would assume there will be another supply issue to drive prices back up.

Didn’t get the memo in Reno either. At least not yet. Maybe they’re switching over to the “winter blend”. LOL! In any case, the lowest I found in the last several days is $3.69 for regular.

SO far, EVERYTIME this kind of message comes out, gas prices drop for 10 days to two weeks THEN, they CLIMB again under some manufactured news or tied to news such as Libya, etc.

EXPECT more of the SAME when the MSM tells us once again... "Prices at the Pump Rise UNEXPECTEDLY on news of _________"

Don't worry folks.
Washington will find a way to get those gas prices back up in the $3.50 range quick enough.

Sure they’re falling. I’m not driving anywhere, just staying home trying to figure out how to pay for home heating oil from here to March!

In Richland we actually had a station @ 3.38 a couple of weeks ago while most were in the 50s and 60s, now that station is in the 50s and most are in the low 60s. So gone up here.
