Sliding gasoline prices in some key battleground states come just three weeks before the U.S. presidential elections. 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."

    Does there need to be an emergency meeting of the Conspiracy Theorists Society or do we need to wait for the Jobless Claims number tomorrow?

    10-20 cents (or more like 5 cents in California) do NOT qualify as a "plunge". If it were political maneuvering, I would expect much better bribery than this.

    Another 10 cents lower in OK today - and oil prices still the same.
