Roller Coaster

Soaring gas price starts to retreat

This morning, sitting at the light at Roselle and Golf Roads in Schaumburg/Hoffman Estates, I watched this story's headline play out. As I sat in the left turn lane, the marquee started shedding numbers, and the $3.199 was replaced, by the time I got to turn, with a $2.999 price for regular unleaded. Not great, but a six percent drop isn't a bad thing, either. Something tells me, though, that we won't be seeing gas prices that start with a one again until the stuff hits ten bucks a gallon. Maybe they'll start advertising prices by the quart, like how they post a half-pound price for meat and cheese in grocery store delis?
