    Your prices are dropping way faster than ours. $2.71 is the lowest I’ve seen here this weekend. We haven’t seen $2.57 gasoline since before Katrina.

    Well, within 20 miles of of where I sit are something like ten refineries (I don’t know the exact number).

    I expect that has a lot to do with it.

    What I find interesting is that, the farther south I go towards Virginia, the higher the prices get till I arrive in Virginia and they drop to lower than prices here. There are no refineries in Virginia, but I don’t know what the gas taxes there are.
