Gas prices

Arco's down to $2.71/gallon this morning. At this rate we'll be down under $2.25/gallon, a 50% drop from the peak price in mid-June, before Thanksgiving. This is making a big difference in my gas bill. The Focus gets good mileage, but I was still putting $50 or so into it every week in June. Now my weekly fill-up's down to less than $35. That's $60 a month more in the budget. OK, for me that's not a big amount, but for people getting by on less than $40K that $60 is probably 50% of their free money every month and makes a huge difference.
