“Gas prices continue moving lower as COVID-related state lockdowns keep Americans off the road, leading to lower demand for gasoline,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Nationwide, implied demand for gasoline has fallen nearly 60%. With fewer drivers on the road, refiners are reducing output. Crude oil prices sank to new lows last week, amid continued uncertainty of when conditions will return to normal. Meanwhile, wholesale gasoline prices remain at lows that could allow the state average to eventually sink to the $1.50s.”

  1. I remember when the gas was around four dollars a gallon, and the big V8s were killing us. Our truck, at that time, had a double sized tank on it, and we never kept it nowhere near full, in fact, I used to gripe at my husband for constantly running around on fumes, and telling him okay, if we run out of gas, ” I ain’t walking”…. LOL I am so happy to see the gas keeps coming down. The lowest I have seen around this area so far is $ 1.73 per gallon. I see where the Trump administration is giving billions to the Arabs, basically bailing them out, because their cash cow, the oil, is falling out, and those rich Arabs don’t know what to do…..oh well, glad the prices are dropping. I guess the only part of this article I don’t understand is why gas stock is up 10 percent?

  2. This lock down of having to pretty much stay at home, is so boring. The nights and days seem so long…..it drives me crazy. All I can lay in bed and think about is, of all the places I want to go, and things I want to do, an oversized bucket list, and yet, there is nowhere to go. I really don’t anticipate things ever being back to the so-called “normal” ever again, in this country. Some of the beaches are open again, but I never dreamed that you couldn’t sit on the beach, or lie down to sun bathe. It is so crazy! From what I am reading, when the restrictions are lifted, many of the chain grocery stores may opt to keep people from entering the building to shop! They may implement curb-side pickup, or home delivery only, to keep their store employees safe. I understand their concern, but I just can’t picture that happening! It is so depressing and crazy, and if that is the way it is going to be, then we have more freedom to go to the grocery stores right now, on lock down! And also, another crazy is the guy who is making masks out of python skins from the snakes caught in the Florida Everglades…..SMH!
