    Gas is going to drop over night at least 15 cents.


    I said it.

    And WM is climbing back up. I hope my buy now 2 days ago to my dad in the 3 dollar range was worth it. :)

    no it won't.

    remeber, oil is what's known as FUTURES. that price you see today is for next months delivery to the refinery, and the following months' delivery to your local pump.

    yep, so that means, when prices go up per the barrel, they will rise per gallon very soon in the future.
    when prices go down per barrel, the price per gallon will fall sometime in the future, no time frame guaranteed.

    we may, but it would take a hefty investor, a lot of ammunition, and some ballsy individuals.
