Good, that is that oil prices should lower, & thus gasoline etc.

I'll bet this dosen't last long. Then the next problem will cause the per barrel price to go to the $100 they have been trying to reach.

Since we're visiting Spain this fall it's ok by us if the Euro
drops from the current 1.21 to 1.00 to the Dollar by then.

Our US dollar then goes further !
