    When I started driving there was a station that sold it for $0.90.
    I could fill up for about $10.

    That was 1992.

    Oil is trading significantly below where it can profitably be produced by fracking.

    Friday night I drove past a place in NJ that was $1.45 (too crowded) and filled up @ $1.49. There was one station I saw that was at $1.80 for some reason, and it was the only joint that was a ghost town. Everywhere else I passed was $1.45-1.57.

    When I think of a couple of years ago where between work and seeing my kid I was going through $200/wk in gas, I love this.

    States usually charge x cents per gallon, not a percent, so low prices + increased comsumption = more revenue.
