Don't hold your breath. Doubt OPEC will let crude prices drop enough to do that without cutting production, though the Saudi's might keep their production up until after early November to help the Bush administration in the election. The QT station on 380 on the east side of Denton was the same price yesterday.

Thanks God the Saudi's don't want liberals elected.

Anon 5:18, Check out the headline on Drudgereport, OPEC chief calls for immediate output cut; Group intent on stopping oilprice fall. I guess that puts a cork in your liberal blather of blaming Bush for everything. I love it when liberals bloody their nose everytime they try to open a door.

When will Decatur's prices drop some more? I saw $2.03 at Burleson Saturday.

Why do so many act as if we have a right to lower gas prices, or that there should be someting done to force or keep prices down? In your line of work, don't you charge what people will pay? And if you charge too much, what happens? It's our fault for buying gas at those prices. And if you're in a position where you "have to" pay no matter the cost, that's your fault for making the lifestyle decisions you've made. There are millions of people living happily in this country that don't use much gasoline at all. They don't have to live 30 miles from where they work. They drive smart, or they don't have to impress people by driving giant vehicles that never haul anything. Count the empty beds or the empty back seats in all the trucks and Suburbans you see today. Why do we smash OPEC or anyone else. We're the idiots that "have to" have gas.

Anon 9:15, the Saudi's, who have the largest portion of the world's oil reserves, don't always walk in lockstep with the other OPEC nations, and they are known to be strong allies with the current administration and have increased their own production in times of shortage when it benefitted our pro-oil-industry adminstration.
If the Saudis don't drop their production, the other countries in OPEC can't afford to drop theirs regardless of what they might want to do. It has happened several times over the past few years. As for Bush, with an approval rating of 33%, there apparently are a lot of people out there who think this president should be held accountable and blamed for much of what is happening or not happening in this country, and it isn't all coming from the liberals unless you want to believe that all that 67% are liberals, which I might add, does not include me. I could care less for radical liberals or neo-conservatives who try to impose their extreme views on everyone else in this country who tend to be more in the middle on most issues. Let's wait until the election is over, then see what happens to oil prices.
Anon, 10:06, I don't disagree with your point of view. If we truly believe in a free market system, prices should always be based on supply/demand factors. My point to bigcatdaddy was that it isn't likely oil prices will stay down for long. There are simply too many potential unsettling events going on in the world that tend to drive oil prices up such as N. Korea's successful test of a Nuke today and the corresponding increase in crude oil futures this morning. Add to that, other countries becoming more modern, such as China, which has a population about 4 times greater than our own, and the demand for oil is only going to go up as the available supplies continue to go down. That's the reality of the situation, and it don't make a damn what your political persuasion happens to be.

If I charge people in my line of work, its called bribery. I go to jail.
