I never thought I would be happy to see...

Currently, gas can be purchased here in Manchester for $3.42 per gallon. If I had been told a couple of years ago that I would some day be happy to pay that for gas, I would have thought you were bananas. However, that is the current state of the gasoline marketplace.

I wish I could be optimistic and believe that prices will continue to fall. However, I don't think that will happen. We'll be fortunate if gas prices ever fall below $3 a gallon again.

It's nowhere near that in Nashville. And it'll have to come down a lot more for me to think seriously about hitting the road much except for necessities, not like I used to anyway. But I think if people continue to moderate their consumption - like we have - then the demand we'll continue to drop, and prices as well. Now if we could just get certain bew-ro-crats off'n their duffs and get real with off-shore drilling- like the rest of the world! - it'll be much mo' bettuh.

I've also noticed that Nashville's prices have been slow to drop. Usually, prices in Manchester and Nashville are fairly competitive, but right now there seems to be a 20 to 25-cent difference. The lowest I've seen in Nashville is over by the airport where the prices have been around $3.59 a gallon.

Sounds like the folks in Chattanoogie have it pretty good right now.
