Independence, OK has about 9 gas stations that are selling gas at 1.61 per gallon. Cheapest gas in the U.S. Still 2.23 per gallon here by my house in Northern CA, although i know there are a few stations a little out of my way that are as low as 2.15. So finally...gasoline is now cheaper than bottled water so no need to start figuring out how to make cars that run on water, right? And we definately dont want to figure out how to make cars that run on Coffee, because if you do the math...a gallon of coffee from starbucks will run you about 25-30 bucks a gallon.
