Default Gas Prices: Anyone relieved?

With the gas prices dropping like a rock.

I have the urge to suddenly look for a STI again, which I would probably regret if I do buy it and summer comes...

But will it drop below the dollar mark before the 3.5c hidden discount?

Yep. I was driving around last night and saw 98 at an Esso Station. A quick scan just now and there were few more stations below $1 in the Tri-cities last night:

I won't really get excited unless 94 octane drops below a dollar--which I don't think will happen.

Not yet. Gas is only worth, at most, 54.9 to me. It's just the people handling the gas that raise the prices. The gas itself doesn't know what its worth, and its not like they've begun lacing the gas with gold either.

I remember when gas was 29.9 in Abby before 2000. Realistically how's the gas changed?

If the trends continue this way I may seriously consider trading up for a WRX, but I bought the 2.5RS so I could use 87 and pay cheaper insurance.

honistly it really doesn't bother me on price of gas, the higher it gets the less likely that'll speed, cause I'll be staying off the fun pedal..

oh and for me with 87, i think my price changes like 1.50 a tank for 60 litres. so yeah.. I'll pay whatever price that gas is, cause I enjoy driving my car WAY too much.

Uhhh, guys? This is the way the prices go EVERY year. Summer begins and prices shoot up a good 20 to 40%. Then summer ends and they drop down to just a few cents more then where it began. The prices are steadily increasing, and will continue to do so, but there is always the guaranteed spike during the summer. I estimate that we will see prices range from .95/l to ~1.15/l through the winter, head up to around 1.20/l during the spring, then spike at ~1.80/l next summer, then drop back down to a "bargain" 1.20/l one year from now. If you think the prices will stay as they are, give your head a shake - you will be selling your sti at a huge loss next june with that mentality.

I've been staying off the throttle so my turbo doesn't spool. And I just saved 15% on my car insurance with Geico.

I'm pissed about the drop.
I bought an STi in January...a few days later, prices jumped from 90 cents/ liter to $1.20/ liter. The day after the STi goes, gas drops back down. I dropped over $600 on gas in July, but it was worth it.

I'm pretty sure the sti is also 91, otherwise everyone driving one in the Democratic Republic of California would be screwed.
