Last night at Half-Times in Johnsburg, my Buddy Paul was showing his gasoline app on his smart phone and we happened to see gas in McHenry was $2.29!! That is the lowest price I've seen in years and I decided to go there tomorrow to take advantage of it with my gas guzzling Dakota.
I figured it was because the new Murphy USA had opened by Wal-Mart. It was. they were having a welcome deal and all the other stations in the area had also dropped their price to match it. It had been $2.70 to $2.80, so that is a really big drop.
That $2.29 didn't hurt nearly so much as the nearly $4 a gallon prices we've been getting hit with the last several years.
I would like to thank Big Oil for finally getting their storm trooper boots off our necks and giving the average Joe a break. But curse you Big Oil for making me thing $2.50 gas is cheap. It shouldn't be over $2.
Gas in Fox Lake the last I looked was just under $2.60.
I have heard from a Route 66 fan that gas in Oklahoma City has dropped below $2.
