Prices have plunged nearly $0.20/gal. in Ohio and more than $0.10 in Wisconsin during the past week; even sky-high California prices have slipped a bit. The drop "is not the result of political maneuvering," Tom Kloza says, "but just the normal rebalancing of inventories and the typical autumn selloff."
