Isn’t it funny how low gas prices are now?

It was just a few months ago that gas in some parts of the U.S. was pushing $4.00 per gallon, and diesel fuel was even higher. As of the first of November, 87 octane grade gas is around $2.28 in the city of Milwaukee, and diesel is somewhere around $3.18.

Oh, and there’s a presidential election on Tuesday. Surely that is just a coincidence.

But I have a feeling it’s no coincidence. Let’s see where the price of gasoline and diesel are in 30, 60, and 90 days.

Also, Renee Crawford agrees. And she’s got charts to back it up.
