Whoaaa... What? Me?  Shamelessly replying to a thread I started in
2005 predicting the price of Gas at 4.00?  :)

In all seriousness though... I told ya so.  A big argument back in
2005 was that it is related to supply and demand.  I recently read
(citation left out intentionally as I wave my hands in the air) that
demand for gasoline has dropped 4% so far this summer.  One would
think that if demand decreases, so would the cost?  But what do I
know... I am just a poor redneck in North Carolina.
