May be posted elsewhere but just fill the tank at Costco at $1.39/gallon. Lowest price locally since 2009. Anyone else aware of how cheap gas is now?
Yeah its getting to the price where I am going to find ways to intentionally burn more of it up.My Mom is in southern Virginia and said it was $1.25 at her usual gas station. I was a high school junior during the first Gulf War and remember paying 85 cents at the lowest. You could cruise all weekend on 5 bucks.
Paid $2.75/gallon in NorCal yesterday. That's rock bottom pricing for me.
Russia just sent lots of medical equipment off to Italy in a show of 'soft power', no doubt.
Around 80% of the coronavirus supplies that Russia has sent to Italy are “useless,” the country’s La Stampa daily reported Wednesday, citing high-level political sources.
Russia sent 600 ventilators and 100 military virologists and epidemiologists to Italy following talks between President Vladimir Putin and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte last Saturday. Footage of Russian military trucks en route from Rome to the coronavirus epicenter of Bergamo circulated online this week.

“Eighty percent of Russian supplies are totally useless or of little use to Italy. In short, this is little more than a pretext,” an unnamed source told La Stampa.
When we were a huge importer of oil, it was a great benefit to the economy to have lower oil and gasoline prices. Now that we are pretty much at net zero (break-even) imports, I don't think it will make much of a difference to the overall economy either way in the very near term.Why do some say low oil prices are not good for the economy? Because it hurts fracking industry here?
That must be why Trump is current;ly triying to mediate deal between Saudi Arabia and Russia..
