Fill 'er up

Improbable thought of the day: Who’d have thought that one day we’d actually be celebrating gas selling for $2.99 a gallon?

Hey, that’s a dollar less than it was going for just a few months ago.

The freefall at the pumps continued over the weekend, with AAA reporting gas prices skidded another 12 cents.

Here in Delaware County, you can actually buy gas for as little as $2.95 a gallon.

That would out at the Wawa in Brookhaven, where they seem to be having some kind of price war.

Now I am wondering if all those moves toward conservation, with everyone looking to buy a hybrid car, or jump onto mass transit, will go out the window as prices decline at the pump.

There are some things about expensive gas that should have taught us a valuable lesson. We shouldn’t abandon them and jump back into our gas hogs just because it’s cheaper to fill up the tank.
