Last night I was excited to find gas for less than $2 a gallon in Streator. Tonight it could be bought for $1.959 a gallon at some Streator gas stations, $2.029 a gallon in Grand Ridge and $2.049 a gallon at some stations in Ottawa. It’s hard to believe that just three months ago, the price for a gallon of 87-octane gas was $3.899 – almost two dollars more than it is now. This may be the only positive result of the bad economy.
