    Enjoy it while we can. I'd guess another ~6 months of cheap oil, maybe even getting into the $40's on some theories. It'll be interesting to see if cheap gas has an impact on people's driving. Perversely, people driving more because gas is cheaper is one good way to end cheap gas.

    Prices in VT are around $2.40ish the last few days. A few cents cheaper just over the CT River in Chesterfield, NH.
    Yup, I paid $2.43 a gallon at the Irving on rte 30 near Maple Valley (and the road to Glenn's place) last night on my way home from VT

    It was a nice quiet ride down 91 for a change. Under two hours for us. Probably close to an hour and 45 door to door.

    Word has it from market analysts that the REAL reason for the OPEC move is that they're pissed with Iran and Russia. Apparently Putin got into a fight with another oil minister at a OPEC meeting a while back. The other OPEC countries don't like what Russia and Iran are doing with Syria. They're using the fracking boom as cover for their motives.

    Same thing! I went over you're way to get on 91 in Brat, expecting that 100 at the light in Wilmington was going to be a BIG back up based on all the traffic heading South down 100 up by Mount Snow. S went right down 100, and said that she only had "3 or 4 cars" at the light in Wilmington!! Smooth sailing home last night!! No complaints!

    An interesting, and fairly plausible, idea. Only scary thing is what Putin might do when his economic ass is in a sling.

    Yes, scary indeed.

    The main media was just presuming that OPEC was battling the new fracking boom in North America. And they've run with that story. But what I mentioned above is something that is not reported and is believed by market analysts instead of mainstream journalists. My understanding is that OPEC did not release any reason for their actions at their last meeting. This certainly is not the first time that OPEC has used pricing as a political tool against its own members.
