National average holds virtually steady over last week

The price, is what it is. When we want to buy gas, we look to GasBuddy to show the least expensive local price. I've built a spreadsheet showing mileage from my home (at 18 cents per mile sunk cost) to the local gas stations with current prices and drive to the one costing me the less to get there and fill-up. Thanks Gas Buddy!

Gas prices have fallen steadily here in Oklahoma for nearly a year. I hardly ever pay more than $2.79 to $2.82 a gallon. I look for it to continue down...nationwide. Supplies are plentiful.

Watch out what you say about oil companies, you may be cutting off your nose to spite your face. Oil company stock is very widely held, especially by people who don't know they're holding oil company stock.
