I saw on the cover of USA Today that there's been a 6 billion mile decrease in travel across the US vs. mileage by this time last year. If the average car receives 25MPG that's 240,000,000 gallons of gas. At $4 a gallon, that's $960 million dollars worth of gas we haven't bought. How many gallons are in a barrel? Is it 60? I think I read that somewhere. If it IS 60, then we've cut our usage by 4 million barrels vs. this time last year. It's a small dent, but it IS a dent, none the less. Seems like a decrease in demand would at least slow this increase in the price per barrel. We can't be the only country that's decreased usage over the last 6 months; especially considering how wasteful Americans are. I think this aids in the argument that supply vs. demand is not the only factor in this inflation situation.....not to stir the debate again.
