Sky high fuel prices have forced most of us to drive less, and the diminished demand for petrol has driven the price of a barrel of oil downward dramatically.

Prices for a barrel of crude oil went down $9.44 today to $99.80.  Unleaded gas also saw a steep drop in price, down 23 cents per gallon to $3.11 on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

While that will probably spell a bit of relief at the pump soon, it won't be long lasting if demand picks back up.  Keep driving less and perhaps we can keep $5 a gallon gas away this summer.  I'll keep riding my bike!
