GasBuddy Blog -- It's been well documented that gasoline prices have taken a big climb late this summer. Well, there's reason to believe that the rise is nearing and end: summer is nearly over. After you wipe away the tears, and digest that statement, we have some good news. First of all, the areas most impacted by refining issues lately (Great Lakes and West Coast) may start to see prices falling if they haven't already. In fact, Chicago prices may have just peaked in the last 48 hours. California prices are very close to peaking as well.

Still holding out for the President to issue a plea for votes in the form of removing the federal tax, which I have heard is 0.48 a gallon. Won't sway me but I will appreciate the effort!

As stated before...gasoline prices fall much slower than they rise. It isn't just the price of gasoline thats the issue, its where our fuel dollars are going!!! do we want more jobs here and energy independence or do we want to continue building golden palaces and foreign dependence.

Mandate all oil pulled out of the ground in this country stays in this country. When we reduce our consumption here they put it on tankers and ship it to China. That's how big oil fixes the problem of excess oil in this country.

Fuel prices are still going up and are Not 'Falling.' With the refinery fire in California and the repairs to be done, fuel prices will Not be 'Falling' anytime soon.
Big Oil can raise or lower prices, Because they can!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
Consider using other forms of less expensive transportation to lower your cost.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Temporary spike yesterday morning as Speedway stations jumped it over $4.07 but it went back to $3.89 later in the afternoon. It's still too high.

It's really dropped along these parts, why it's almost free, perhaps.
