    It's true :eek:

    Buy less oil, by 8%, and pay 40% less.

    The world of Catch 22 economics is on its head. How fantastic.

    Can we please keep it this way. Consume less, pay less, do less damage.

    Great in theory for sure, but. I can't be certain that demand and usage is the only reason prices have fallen over the last 4 weeks. The rumors of the US economy added to blame being pointed at the speculators could be part of it. (price of a barrel dropped nearly 50 percent and gas drops 25 percent). I wouldn't think that the decreases seen recently wouldn't be permanent, and trickle down to the prices of goods will take even longer. And it has yet to effect the price of heating fuels where many have locked into contract limiting the fluctuation of prices in both directions. Please drive safely and less...
