A few years ago, I had pretty much resigned myself to ridiculous gasoline prices - especially in the summer months. So, for everyone like me, can you believe this?

Yes, they (oil companies, refiners, whomever) jack it up from time to time, just to remind us who is boss, but this is still amazing. Filling up my tank for less than $30. Thank you. Going camping in a few weeks, and not having to take out a mortgage. Again, thank you.

The pessimist in me says this won't last, but...this is the height of the summer driving season. Demand is not going to go up in October. Enjoy the ride, my friends.
