Gas for $2.49/gallon* in St. Louis Park (12/4/2014)

Just in case the numbers in the photo (above) are too small to read:  the price of regular unleaded gas at Costco yesterday am was $2.49/gallon(!).

In fact, if you paid with a Costco credit card as I did, after the 3% rebate on gas, that comes to closer to $2.43.*

My three sentiments:  1) “Yeah!”; 2) I hope this bankrupts Putin and every (other) Third World oil despot; and 3) I (also) hope Americans’ reaction isn’t to bring back Hummers, McMansions, and other stupidities.

In fact, as I’ve previously argued on this blog, the U.S. should use the current “gas dividend” wisely and strategically, instead of just partying (and ultimately squandering it).
