Ahhh, I remember when gas prices were under $1.49 a gallon pre-new millenia. Good times, good times. Now that I actually have a car of my own, and gas prices are (more than ever) a part of my ever-tightening budget, I'm curious. Could gas prices ever come back down to around that price? Could it happen as soon as the 2008 Election? Also, is there a solid reason as to why current oil prices keep rising, and so fast?
