Got Gas?

With the holiday weekend now over (and as someone who drove out of and back into town over the weekend), I’m shocked — shocked, I say — that I’m suddenly seeing gas prices around town fall now that most everybody’s travel is done. The Astro Boy near me has dropped by over a dime a gallon since Friday. And I know we’ve been talking about and questioning the gas prices on the bloggy blog here for a while.

*an interesting note is that if you search for “gas” in the Metblog archives, it also pulls up a dieselboi post from April of last year about the very same topic. Again, color me so very, very shocked (what, gas prices are somewhat cyclical? get out of town!)*

But today, I found a pretty interesting graph via Autoblog that shows that gas really isn’t that expensive in the historical sense, though I’m guessing the trend line now is still more on the upswing than the down as demand rises and supply decreases.

And hey, if you really want to see high prices, you could always go to Europe, where they’re paying more than double our current price.
