Gas prices drop and heading down more, experts say

Orlando Sentinel -- The price of gasoline took its biggest drop since 2008 in the past two weeks due partly to lower crude oil prices and lower demand for gas after Superstorm Sandy, according to industry surveys released this week.

And prices should keep slipping, possibly ending the year cheaper in Florida than a year ago, experts say.

In Broward County, the price of regular gas averaged $3.55 per gallon Monday, down eight cents from a week ago and 23 cents from a month ago.

In Palm Beach County, the price averaged $3.60 per gallon Monday, down six cents from a week ago and 21 cents from a year ago.

Still, that's more expensive than this time last year, when prices averaged $3.46 per gallon in Broward and $3.50 in Palm Beach counties, according to travel club AAA.

Prompting the recent drop

I don't mind prices coming down, but economy will not improve until diesel drops below 3.50 / gallon again. Right now cheapest is around 3.85/gal around here. Higher ones still at 3.99 or even more.

It will most likely be short-lived. I expect that prices will double by 2016.

Oh, it is the day after the election. Prices are supposed to rise in the opinion of the cynical right wing nuts. Too bad they still do not understand that oil is a global commodity and not President, past present or future, can control a global market!

Maybe for some....

After a sharp spike (.30+ cents) a few days ago, we are seeing a very shy drop of a few pennies today.

We'll see what tomorrow brings.....

Gas prices will rise. As they already have soared in the Northeast due to the storms in NY area. And wholesale prices are headed up. And the stars are lining up just so. And the moon is in the 7th house...etc.
