Gasoline prices are driven by-and-large by the balance between supply and demand. While oil prices certainly play a part, an over abundance of refined gasoline can drive prices lower. That's exactly what we have witnessed lately. According to analyst, Taylor Muckerman, surging refined product production is likely to boost revenues at pipeline operators Enterprise Product Partners (NYSE: EPD  ) , Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE: MMP  ) and Sunoco Logistics Partners (NYSE: SXL  ) .

    Cheaper gas? REALLY- When it drops to the lower 3 dollar mark people think that's great- Lets get it down to 1.50 a gallon - that way the greedy oil companies can still make their gazillion dollars and we the people will be real happy.

    It's only cheaper for those that live in cities, those of us who live in so called fly-over country think differently. Living here in Kansas seems like the next city of any size is at least 60 miles away. I'd settle for $2 a gallon. Wish my pay kept up with these prices.

    It's not 'cheaper' gasoline. This is a lie. It's the same it's been and it should be below $3/gallon, but in fact it went up to $3.29 just this past week for no reason. We dropped below $3 for day or two, then bam 30c jump right back up. VERY tired of hearing about 'cheap gas' nonsense. It's NOT 'cheap'. It SHOULD be with all the oil we're swimming in, but no....
