Default Low Gas Prices

I have been enjoying the low gas prices. Because I drive 65 miles one-way to work the savings has been significant. So much so that in the last 12 months I have increased by 401K deduction twice. Just something others might want to consider. Even if you don't have a 401K you might consider putting this "savings" into another long term retirement investment.

Un-possible. I have seen you drink. No way you can drink more.

Even the stuff in your hand is virtual money.

Low fuel prices have killed the resale value of my fiat. Even more so than the 4 letter brand on it.

It's killing all the hybrids and electrics too. Except Tesla. Douchebags are still buying Teslas.

Happens every election, drops down as one idiot is leaving and goes back up as the next one steps in office.

Gas prices have nothing to do with election politics this time around.

We are in a world wide recession, going into a depression.

If you crazy kids would like to watch shipping traffic world wide, freight, oil etc..

marinetraffic.com you can single out different types of ships. Might be hard to keep up with the fast pace movement...... oh wait no it wont because nothing much is moving, just sitting offshore or in ports.
Demand for oil is low worldwide. Container ships at all time low.

You may not feel it yet but you soon will.

I admire the first post about saving the money from low gas prices but for fucks sake don't put it into your 401k.
