I’m Seeing More Cars

Dear Journal,

I got gas the other day and was surprised to see it was below $3.00!! Back during the summer I would have never imagined that gas prices would drop to this point.

Source: NY Times

I remember when Regular Unleaded was $0.99 a couple years ago … remember those times?

Anyway, I was reading an article in the NY Times yesterday about people driving more due to gas prices going down.

I can see the effect of that because it takes longer to get back to my apartment these days. It’s like no one carpools anymore … everyone will take their own cars even if 5 people are going to the same destination.

Since prices are lower, people aren’t too worried about filling up at the pump. Which of course means more cars, more traffic, and more of the same thing we all face in sunny Southern California.

    Oh no, it also means that prices may go up if more people are using gas. Hey, at least it’s going in the right direction for now.

    Gas here is about $2.65. A blog buddy in MI says hers is about $2.20

    I’m love the gas price dip! Actually, this last time I was able to get a free tank of gas! It was awesome, I bought enough stuff at the grocery store I go to, that I earned $2.90 in gas points!
