It's ok, people. Just start doing what you did before.

There are reports of $2.99 gas in some areas of the metro. It seems plausible since gas was $3.09 at several stations in Lakeville this morning. So it's officially over. I'll bet you feel pretty fucking stupid for trading in your double-engined Lincoln Navigator now, don't you? I foresee mass abandonment of hybrids by the side of the road and upon clovered hillocks. I, for one, am going to take my gas-sipping 4-cylinder coupe to the old trash burning pit on the family farm, douse it in paint thinner, and light it ablaze. Then I'll take the insurance money and use it to buy a spare tire for a Land Rover. It'll have to be a used tire though.

Don't use paint thinner, use gasoline instead -- it's probably now more inexpensive, just in time for the elections.

Two years a go, who would have thought that $3/gal would be considered cheap?

I filled up for $3.32 9 days ago. Great. Just fucking great.

It's been $3.39/gallon in my area for the past 5 days. I filled up at $3.59 a week ago and it's been dropping ever since.

It's a fucking conspiracy.

15 mpg in my Jeep and a 10 mile round-trip to work daily, I can go at least 3 weeks between fill-ups if I cruise for local hookers and skip the downtown trim.

Bill, I already have a lot of paint thinner around. I just like the way it smells and turns my fingernails black.

Discordianstooge, I remember how big the brick was that I shit when it hit $2 a few years back. I used it as the cornerstone in my fireplace.

Kevin, serves you right for filling up with gas when you need it.

Jeff, if hookers stopped driving so much, we wouldn't be in this mess.
