First take/gas

Now that summer is over, it’s time for gas prices to drop, a little. In Oregon last week, gas prices fell by 11 cents in the space of one week (which was in the same direction but a good deal faster than across most of the country). Still, the prices have gone back down to the point that about a quarter of gas stations nationally have returned to sub-$2 gas. What might account for that? Some reports indicated it might have to do with interest rates, though that seems iffy. Speculation here: Follow the speculation. – rs
