I feel pretty good for the short run, but I think these really low prices per barrel are not going to serve out best interest in the long run, for the reasons stated above. I can see states adding to fuel taxes in the mid-term and the Feds messing with fuel mileage requirements to keep me from buying a high power car that I have been wanting. For sure, it will change our economy in ways we will probably not be happy with. Think I will go top off the Newmar!

Uh, people who buy high power cars don't care about the price of gas. My Corvette averages 20mpg all around and it's my driver, putting about 8k miles a yr. How much would I save to drive a sedan with 30mpg? Not enough to turn my head. Life is too long not to have what you want because of mpg. Since you own a Newmar, unless it's real old, is a higher priced rig. Remember, you can't take it with you and your children will just waste it. Buy what you want now while you can still enjoy it. There's no telling what the gov't will do to us in the future.

Listening to the news today there was a fellow from an oil magazine who said currently the refineries were marking up the margin on diesel 3 times the margin on gasoline.

Why - because the demand for gasoline was dropping but the need for diesel to haul freight was unchanged.
