I generally try not to talk too much about gas prices, but in this case I couldn’t resist. This past Saturday I bought gas for $2.139/gallon, and I saw it later in the day at a rural location further down the road for $2.029/gallon. I retrospect, I was struck by two things. First, I’m amazed at how quickly the prices have fallen. Second, and more importantly, I’m amazed at how quickly I came to view gas at slightly over $2/gallon as being “cheap.” But no matter how cheap it feels, I still recommend that you do simple things like drive conservatively (unlike our friends in Texas), think high mileage when shopping for a car, and consider public transportation whenever possible.
