Today, I filled up the Dakota at Murphy USA on Illinois Highway 31 in McHenry, Illinois. The sign read $1.99.9. Wow! I never expected Big Oil to allow the price to go down below $3, and now this!! Gas all up and down the road in McHenry was at that price as well as Murphy USA started a gas war (another term I never thought to hear again) when it opened a month ago.
Gas in nearby Fox Lake was $2.18 on Christmas Eve, but I filed up the '03 Malibu at Thornton's for $2.05 with my 13 cents off in their Rewards Program.
With gas this low, we'll have to plan a trip in January.
Must enjoy it now as I figure Big Oil will have us gouged back to $4 by May.
