Gas prices continue to drop

Always nice to start the week off with a bit of good news. In this case it’s gasoline prices — down yet again. The most recent peak was April 5 ($3.94), which was lower than last year’s spring peak ($3.99). The worst recent year was 2008, when spring prices hit $4.11/gallon.

There’s no predicting what will happen, of course. The biggest influence on prices is the price in Europe. Because we’re now exporting fuel, energy companies will (naturally) sell where the price is best — and that’s overseas.

But for now enjoy the lower prices.
