  1. Exxon is only that expensive because people buy there. Stop giving into the craze of “exxon gas” or go to the Exxon at New Hampshire and Rt 70 it is ussually 20 cents cheaper there!

    If everyone will stop buying gas at exxon they will be forced to lower their prices and then we can have a cheap brand name gas station in a cantral location!

  2. The Exxon is nuts. I dont mnow why ppl even go there. Swifty gas is 7 blocks away. Gas is, usually, 20 cents cheaper per gallon, Is owned by a fununzere, & 4 Corners has a store there. I almost never goto Exxon.

  3. gas should be $1.99 a gal because of the price of a barrel is under $100 now. However the American people are are so use to paying these high prices they think $2.99 is a great deal!

  4. Is this actually under $3 dollars a gallon . If its 2.99 9/10 and you ask for one gallon of gas, how much money do you have to give? I assume you would give $3.00 and not get any change which would mean its not under $3.00 a gallon

  5. swifty is owned fun unzere. he is my uncle. an ehrlicha and a major baal chessed and tzedaka. its a mitzva to get from unzere and especially if its cheaper

  6. When Obama became president, gas was at $1.69. Now we’re celebrating $2.99. How the times have changed.

    (but don’t drill in the US. That would offend the democrat environmentalists.)

  7. Gas was cheap when Obama came into office because the economy had just tanked. 6 months previous to him taking office, it was over $4.00 a gallon .

  8. Joe, the economy under Obama is just as bad, yet gas prices have doubled.

    Also, remember when Bush tried to pass a law to allow drilling for oil in the US and the Dems blocked him? Remember? But let’s bury our heads in the sand and think that somehow Obama saved us by lowering gas from $3.19 to $2.99.
