The price of a barrel has dropped yet gas is still running 3.65-3.70.
Still way to much

The current price is $3.79/$3.78 here but with the weekend rolling in that'll change. What stinks is you never know if they will lower it or raise it.

We're down to $3.58

At issue is the prices per barrel have dropped by 25% yet gas prices have not dropped by the same percentage. One of the local DJ's calls that "Oil Company Math."

I don't know how much it is where I live, but here in Schaumburg, Illinois we paid $3.97 a week ago. When I heard, Thursday, that oil had gone up that day over $5 a barrel (they said because of the Russia/Georgia conflict) I knew it would be up the next day, and I was right. We paid $4.17 or $4.19 a gallon yesterday at the same station.
