How much lower can it go?

When I moved to Texas 8 years, 5 months and 23 days ago gas prices sat at $1.34/gallon. I didn't think much of it, as I was just driving around Jerry's Miata and had no real idea what the conversion and what not was. However, now that I am more aware of it, I actually find myself nervous as the gas prices keep dropping. I have no idea why, it's not logical. But when I pulled up to the pump and paid $1.52/gallon - less than 20 cents more than I paid when I first moved here ... it made me jittery. Something has to bust. Something has to change in a bad way, with the economy in the crapper, housing prices dropping like no ones business...

I've only been here for 4 years and 5 days and have never paid $1.34. I don't even think I have paid $1.52 either! I thought I was saving a fortune when I got gas for $1.71. haha!

I'm excited about the gas prices but with you I'm a little interested to see what happens in the next 6 months. There's got to be SOMETHING ominous behind these low low prices...

Enjoy it while you can. I'm just glad not be paying $4.02 anymore. Our house prices however really have not dropped. I have several friends that are looking, they wish they would.

We shall see... I will enjoy it and put the extra money towards paying things off so when the gas prices do rise again I don't have to worry about my bills.
