Curious Why Gas Prices Aren’t Dropping Faster

I’m wondering now that the price of oil per barrel is down under $80, we only see a few cents lower at the pumps. I’d like to know when the price of gas was down to $2 something a gallon, what was the price per barrel then?? And why don’t we see a lower price at the pumps now?? – Susan, Graniteville

9-11, 9/11, WTC, World Trade Center

Too Much 9/11 Focus?

I want to know when big business and the news media will stop raping the memory of 9/11. If i’d lost someone on 9/11 i’d want to remember them quietly with family members my horrible loss. I would not want all these people making money off of it every year.It is no longer a rememberance of loss, but a money making opportunity for large and small businesses alike. Our great loss should be allowed to “rest in peace” – David, Holden
