Gasoline prices this Easter weekend are at their lowest level in recent years, according to AAA; on average, a gallon of gasoline set back U.S. drivers $3.64 Friday, vs. $3.93 last Easter and $3.86 in 2011. Meanwhile, the Obama administration announced new rules Friday meant to reduce sulfur in gasoline and tighten emissions standards for cars and trucks, which could push up prices by as much as $0.09/gallon.

    Lowest?
    MAN!
    Talk about an "Overton Window", I guess with that logic Unemployment is also the lowest in years!
    This is total misdirection by the progressive state / media!
    Want to be forward thinking?
    Look into "C Score" your children and the future of OUR capitalist way of life depend on it!
    And before someone chastises me on how this is an investing blog, all this is related.
    How can you invest today with the fed and the state controlling everything?
    Looks like Canada liked the "Bail In" theory so much they are incorporating it also!
    Tomorrow is Easter Sunday, the Lord has risen, may the Holy spirit visit all those and strengthen that which binds us all together!
    Be good to each other when it is hardest,
    do onto others as you would have done onto you,
    then we can start to heal and with God's mercy,
    CHANGE!

    This is horrendous! I am expecting 30-40% down in the markets when it opens on Monday. Gasoline prices dropping means massive inflation ahead.

    Ever since that Socialist took over the White House I do not go outside. I sit in the dark all day in a fetal position, while clutching my gold.

    We shall have none of that low gas prices problem.

     

    It would not be fair to the rest of the world if we enjoyed lower prices.

     

    New rules should hep reverse the trend.

    They will keep pushing the regulations and requirements until refineries are no longer able to produce gasoline legal for sale in the United States.

     

    It hurts nobody except US consumers of gasoline, as the refiners will just export their supplies to other countries who are not so totally insane.

    I know, John, right!? You see gasoline prices are dropping, which must be because of all the new rules and regulations. Brilliant observation.

    President Obama has done a good job expanding domestic energy.

    The howling that will be a fart in the end. A less smelly fart because it will contain less sulfur gases.
