    Filled up in Laurel this morning - $2.69 a gallon ! It's sad that we think that is good. As far as OBAMA goes. Don't know if gas prices are his credit or fault. It doesn't change the fact that he is an idiot and will go down as the worst President thus far in US history.

      Obama's been blamed by prospective candidates for high gas prices... so why doesn't it make sense for him to be credited with lower prices? To blame, but not give credit, is a typical tactic to keep people riled and full of hate. Geesh.

    I agree lower gas prices have nothing to do with poltics.I don't why every time something news worthy happens, some people find a way to blame or discredit the president for irrelevant matters.

    Everett ...I'm sure u blamed him when it was high and now not blame him when it is to low. It's neither Do your homework it's all about Supply and Demand. Google that and you will fully understand the economics of most of the things you purchase on a daily basis. Economics 101.... Just as all the presidents before him that u didn't complain about he is doing the best he can!

    I sure would be nice to see that price. But best would be the good old days of 99 cents.

    It is amazing how gas prices can go down right before the election. And obama will surely want to take credit for it. But a year ago there was nothing he could do about it. Come on people it is all about politics and the dollar. This country is not ran by the people, it is ran by big business.
