Gas Prices?

Uhhh - Has Anybody Noticed the Price Of Gas Lately?
Ron in Ohio has

I mean, usually after an election the price goes up but since President Trump (I still can't get over how great that sounds) announced the end of deregulation on the energy  industry, the resumption of fossil fuel exploration, mining and 'fracking' and the OK for the Keystone Pipeline. Have ya' noticed what has happened to gas prices? I have here in Ohio. This is from the "Gas Price Heat map" on which shows the average gas prices in the USA at the time:

Furthermore; Here's what else it said for we Ohioans and for the rest of the country;

Ohio Avg: $ 2.053 - Prices Falling
Current National Average: $2.285
Current Crude Price: $53.730 per barrel

My Local Lowest Regular Gas Prices in the Last 24 hours in Mount Vernon, Ohio:
1.99 @ B-P  814 Coshocton Ave & Verndale Dr
1.99 @ Kroger 853 Coshocton Ave & Shalimar Dr
1.99 @ Shell 670 N Sandusky St & Belmont Ave
1.99 @ Shell 600 W High St & S Lewis
1.99 @ Certified 509 W High St & Lewis St
1.99 @ United Dairy Farmers 10 N Sandusky St & W Chestnut St
1.99 @ Sunoco 105 Newark Rd & Main St
1.99 @ Speedway 1 Columbus Rd & Newark Rd
1.99 @ Shell 700 Harcourt Rd & Kentucky Ave

If I may paraphrase; Hey Lib-O's! What's in (Or Not in) your wallet?

I last filled-up over a week ago @ $2.15.9 and thought I'd better do it (historically) before the new administration is in power. OK, I showed no faith what-so-ever. I'd like to hear what it is now and what it was a week ago where you live.

Oh, in case you're wondering, here's the gas price trend in all 50 states - The prices below are for regular gasoline as of 1/26/2017 @ 11:47 PM local time:

For what it's worth.  Ron in Ohio

Well done Ron in Ohio

When crude is around $50.00 a barrel, the savings of around $10.00/barrel running it through a pipeline instaed of rail or truck is the difference between profit & loss.
So keep dumping crude OPEC - until you run out.

Hmm. Notice how this corresponds to the voting in Nov 2016. Just a coincidence, I'm sure. /sarc off
