I'd be shocked if it happens again before 2012 at least. Gas prices have fallen to 2003 levels, so probably not until 2013 at that rate. I vote for 4-5 years.

It'd be really nice if $4/gallon gas never happens in Obama's first term!

It depends on market conditions as well as numerous other variables.  The spike was artificial, but so has been the rate of decline.

hopefully never, but it'll go back up when the economy recovers. Maybe not that high until 2011 or so.

Possibly soon, opec decided to decrease production in light of dropping demand.

The recession world wide will be long and hard, and the interim will be used to slow  the growth of useage, and so 3-4 years minimum.

Since it only took 2 months to fall this far, I don't see why it couldn't be back up to those levels in two months again, but whatever. This could be a funny thread to bump at some point.

Bubbles pop faster than they build. It's not like real estate prices could easily jump back to 2006 levels next year for example.

I'd actually say not in 2009, but probably in 2010.  The prices are so volatile, it's hard to imagine it staying consistent enough to say it'll remain this low.

prices still can go down if/after we've hit peak oil....

of course the higher prices get, the more oil people bother to find, and the more peak oil gets delayed.

I doubt they reach those levels during this recession. So yes, BRTD, if you want the gas levels to remain at these levels, hope for the recession to last most of Obama's first term.

He was almost right.  It happened a bit earlier than he said.

Yes.

Just specify the measure. National average, or price in a particular jurisdiction.

National average for regular is still $3.92 or so. It probably won't hit $4 for a couple of weeks based on refinery upgrade schedules in the Midwest.

And despite the fact that it took longer than most people thought it would to return to $4 a gallon I will still not be able to escape people endlessly complaining.
