I'm waiting to see if this gets any media coverage and if it has any effect.

I just found out about this May 15'th from my oldest son today. I don't really know what good it will do but I'm for anything that will bring down prices. I can spend of upwards to $400 a week in fuel, thats $800 right out of my paycheck every two weeks. OUCH.

Well, it got the media attention around here and on the same day the gas prices shot up from $3.239 to $3.499!
No, I didn't buy gas on the 15th, I had plenty in the tank but wished I had filled up on the 14th.
Now they'll drop the prices a few cents a gallon to make it look like a bargain.

I think they have their sights set onf the $4 mark since that has been speculated and the oil barrons would hate to disappoint.

that is quite a gap in the figures there, it does look like the prices should be going up up up. paid $3.19/g in NY yesterday, That was for 89oct, felt like cleaning the cars valves out a bit.
edit: looking at that again, $4/g would seem like quite a jump, my guess 3.86 and then it dips again.

While there is a gap there it is interesting to note that crude has not gone up proportionately to gas. This makes for added profits [&o]

I just filled up at $1.093 here in Ontario. That's around 4.13 US gallon. My 2.0L pop bottle engine is just not small enough for 2 hours of driving per day.

That's cheap! The lowest price I seen on the way to and from work was 1.172. That converts to 4.4306 US gallon. Then convert CDN dollar to US dollar - ~ just over $4.00 US.
