Ouch $2.89.... its $1.44 here i did see it go as low as .99 recently. Have not seem it that low since i was in high school. Then again cigarettes were $1.29 then. as well, now i believe close to $5.00, a carton $45 to $50 dollars. Glad i kicked the habit in 2012. As for gas, still hooked i guess.
There were some stations got below a buck a gallon here but no where near i live. The lowest i got the benefit of was around $1.20 .... Price going up so somethings here in the Buckeye State are getting back to "normal" ...
I paid $1.79 for gas last Friday in Epsom, NH. Best I have done on diesel was $2.39 two weeks ago, it has slid back up a little to $2.45. I saw heating oil advertised at $1.99 last week, we are still using that (well, most are, we use propane) since temperatures have been mostly stuck at 10 or more degrees below 'average' here for quite a while.
It's $1.70 right now in my area (NC). I suspect it will go up before the end of the month. Restrictions are being lifted and people are getting back to work. I started back at the office yesterday and noticed traffic is picking up too...something I did not miss. Funny I was just reading an article today that said truck sales have more than doubled during this pandemic due to gas prices. It won't stay this low forever though. Enjoy it while you can.
I saw this and figured you guys would enjoy it....
This is priceless!
All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap; it just illustrates how outrageous some prices are.
You will be really shocked by the last one (at least, I was)!!!
Think a gallon of gas is expensive?
This makes you think, and also puts things into perspective.

Ever wonder why computer printers are so cheap? So they can hook you for the ink. Someone calculated the cost of the ink; you won't believe it but it's true: $5,200 a gal.
$5,200 A GALLON!!!
So, the next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn’t run on water, Scope, Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, NyQuil or, God forbid, Printer Ink!!!!!
Nice post Tacky. Anyone remember the video out about 10-15 years ago about the cost per pound of venison. “The most expensive meat on the planet” if you took Into account all the related expenses. My wife showed it to me before a deer hunt with my buddies. I’m sure she was trying to tell me something, but I didn’t get it.

Not much protesting happening here today - a little BLM and ANTIFA get-together downtown (without proper face covering or social distancing), but no riots or looting.... yet.
Last night, I saw someone get into trouble with a firearm in a (for me, anyway) new and novel way. Let me set the...
