One year ago and today

The top photo was taken one year ago. The bottom was taken today. Looks like gas prices didn't shoot up after the election, did they Tony?





Tony, the owner of my favorite corner shop said after the elections the stations with gas under $2.00 would raise their prices. His gas at the time was $2.09, not very high but over a dime more a gallon. Looks like he was wrong, today he is at $1.99. Since he has changed over from Mobil to Texaco his gas has always been close to the cheapest in town.

We got a chill in the air this morning, but it looks like today's going to be a great day. I am going to go find something to do.

Ours finally dropped under 2.00 too...I'm not confident in it staying so low though, fingers crossed!
Love the comparison photo. It's chilly here too today. We're just copying y'all, with the gas prices and chilly weather,lol.
Have a great weekend!

Cool. I've been to your favorite corner store once and the owner is really nice. As for fuel prices, I'm loving it.

For a while, it cost me $60 to fill up, but the other day it was less than $40. What a difference a year makes.

Ours is still well over $2 here. Looks like I might have to drive out to Texas or up to Virginia to fill up! LOL

Very interesting to compare! Our prices aren't quite that low yet, but they're getting there...

Had a couple of my grandsons this weekend, didn't get a chance to read and comment.

Our gas is $2.49 up to $2.67.

Arco is the cheapest.

We aren't down to under a dollar yet but we certainly saw under a dollar on our trip out East....

Our gas is just under $2.55. I just hope it hangs on and doesn't shoot over $4.50 again.
