Well.......great for the consumer for sure. Especially us guitarists! :banana:

I'm in manufacturing and taking a big hit. So are my customers. The temporary fix is to start sourcing over the border............not good for people who need jobs over here. :frown:

Not good for anybody, gas prices will still rise regardless, because they need more profit...........

Gas prices are an odd thing. When we were at $60/barrel, we paid up to $1.20 at the pumps. Now it'll break $100/barrel and we're paying $0.96.... no sense at all.

I live in a borer town and I just haven;t found the time to make a run.
I think it's time but in talking this over with some pro-shoppers (my sister-in-law), the thing to do is go deep.
Don't stop at the outlet stores just over the border.
Drive in to the next state - and if that state is a no-sales-tax state, go deeper in to get to the malls and shopping centres that the locals use.
The stuff near the borders is set up for the cross border shoppers and have higher prices - generally speaking.
