Last month, I noted that the gas price rollercoaster had returned to $4.
I have seen gas at that price, although not nearby. The corner station is still selling regular for $3.85, as are the three stations a few blocks away. I should consider myself and my neighbors lucky.Since then, prices went down, then stabilized. On Tuesday, February 26th, prices had fallen to $3.79 at the local stations. I didn't see the prices for a week, as I was on break and also recovering from surgery. By the middle of last week, the price had fallen to $3.65, where it has remained since then. As I wrote in the title, boring. That's bad for a rollercoaster, but good for the economy and people's budgets. May the prices stay there for a while.
While gas prices may be boring, there was other energy news that I found both exciting and positive: President Obama Speaks on American Energy.
President Obama discusses the need to continue investing in American-made energy to help create jobs while further reducing our dependence on oil, better protecting consumers from spikes in gas prices, and reducing pollution. March 15, 2013.Music to my ears.
