I think one of the major reasons that the price of crude/gas has dropped is because we have an election coming up!!! You will probably see the prices climb again after that!!!

Just like a lot of factors drove it up, so are a lot driving it down.

Oil prices hit 3-month low on stronger dollar - Oil & energy - MSNBC.com

BK, ye give our good gov't far too much credit. Someone would have to actually know what he was doing to accomplish that. Fact is the US doesn't have as big a hand in the global oil market as it once did, though we're still the biggest consumer.

A world wide reduction in need, an increasing dollar, and economic slow down is Europe are the main reasons.

They are still $2 too high anyway.

I see now the cash and credit prices are back at the pump. I pay with my debit card and it costs 10 cents more/gal.

There was an interesting bit on the news (don't remember where) which stated that with retailers competing heavily with each other by chopping their profits down to a bare minimum, when you use a credit card the credit card company makes more on each gallon of gas than the retailer makes.

I read the same thing...out here there are a few stations with two tiered pricing...a lower price for cash...reflecting the merchant fee charged by the credit card companies.

MC and visa are about 2% of the sale. American express is 5% I believe.
