Fill 'er Up!
I've got gas

In the time it took me to use half a tank of gas, gas prices fell $1.00. Which is both a testament to how quickly the prices are falling, and how little I drive my car. The last time I filled up my car, it was because prices fell below $3. I couldn't resist, even though I didn't really need gas. I now have half a tank, and I feel I must fill up again, now that gas is $1.97. Plus, I'll actually be using a lot of gas over Thanksgiving weekend, having to drive to Rochester and back. I remember when gas was like $1.87, and that was back in high school. Weird. Not long ago, gas was over $4.

Apparently, consumer prices are falling and we're entering a period of deflation. How long do you think it'll take for the Wii to cost $100? That's what I'm waiting for.

LOL, the Wii. Gas I think is $1.79 here now. Also, Franken now trails by 125 votes.
