We all saw these prices, well Missouri’s gas is now $2.07 and dropping everyday. Why? Holidays are approaching, refineries are still damaged and yet gas is coming down. Now don’t get me wrong- I love they are going down but why were they up so high? Who’s making all this money or are they trying to influence a vote. After all, Missouri is a “swing state”.

In the late nineteenth century, Missouri was a major electoral power: St. Louis was the third largest city in the country, behind New York and Philadelphia. In the twentieth century, Missouri has become politically important for a different reason: In every election but one the state has voted for the winner of the presidential election. (In 1956, the state picked Adlai Stevenson, from neighboring Illinois, over Dwight Eisenhower.) In the last three presidential elections, the state has come closer than any other to matching the exact margin of victory.

Well I guess we will see what happens Novemeber 5 to prices…I just find it strange but will continue to enjoy while they are down!

    $1.95 and some places east are $1.83.OK folks- what is very wrong here- we have been taken for years so wealthy oil men (Bush) could line their own pockets. Time to stand up and fight back- go VOTE!
