So are you feeling some relief that the prices come down a little bit?

 

Umm, yes, I am. Hmm because it was really hard like going to work. I work out here and I live in Baldwin, so the commute was killing me like gas-wise , so I’m glad it’s going down.

 

A little relief for the pump, but it’s sort of a latent effect, because I think you know(/), the, the price per barrel has been coming down, so finally it’s passing to the consumer. That’s a good thing. And the market is still unsteady, so I’ll factor that this thing with everything else is going on.

 

I certainly think it’s better. Do I think it gonna last? I don’t think so. I think this is all due to the stock market.

 

It’s a relief, but it not a relief for the Average Joe , you know what I mean, relief for everybody else, so you can, you know, drive around and add some money in the bin and you can fill up .But you know for average guy with a company vehicle, it’s still a lot.

 

Well, that’s a lowset I haven't seen in a long time, be honest with you. I know it was up for a half around 4 and now it’s come to this low. It’s a good thing.

 

And people always happy when the prices' going down. So, you know them, before, they were angry and they came to the cage shield of that year. You raise the prices and these things. But now and slowly, slowly price going down. So everybody’s happy. You know what I mean?

 

And have you been cutting anything else, so you can now pay for your gas?

 

Yes, I bring my own lunch now. I don’t buy lunch out any more, because I can't afford it, because you know…

 

Ok, let me see your nails if there is any manicure, yes(/) or no?

 

No, nothing.

 

Yeah, you and me both.

 

So we are not gonna Starbucks after this, right?

 

Definitely not. I’m going home and I'm gonna make a pot of coffee.

 

Did you just fill your whole tank? 

 

No.

 

How much did you put in?

 

$20.

 

And what did that get you?

 

Half a tank.

 

That’s edgy.  Do You have a nice Chevy there? That’s not too bad, right?

 

No, it’s pretty good on gas.

 

How much does it take to fill a limo?

 

Er, it’s gotta be around $80.

 

Yeah.

 

Yeah, that’s a lot of money.

 

Even at the $3.29?

 

Well no, it’s the low I have filled up but wouldn’t be this low yet. So I don’t know just yet.

 

Right now, I am doing half a tank. I usually go to BJ’s, and I fill my tank up there because it is cheaper. But I’m running low and I have somewhere to go. So I’m trying to fill it up.

 

Well, for these prices, I will probably fill.

 

It looks like tomorrow will go more down. You know what I mean, tomorrow, today we are $2.19, hopefully it’s come back, you know by $2.50 a gallon, and now economy got better, everybody, you know what I mean, they have it, they can spend some more money on…

 

On chloe
