Falling pump prices could give Obama a lift
"In a week that saw President Barack Obama poll dead-even with Republican rival Mitt Romney in the race for the White House, it may have been some relief to Democrats that gas prices have shed 17 cents in the last 12 days.
While that could help boost the president's chances for another four-year term (or at least not hurt them), the drop in prices has more to do with luck than with White House energy policy.
After refinery bottlenecks sent prices surging ahead of a seasonal switch from summer to winter gasoline blends, those kinks have been cleared and gasoline has begun flowing smoothly again."

4. Dropped $0.34 cents in my area (Inland Empire, SoCal) in just
one week! Well, between Friday and Monday, that is.
I was shocked to see how fast the prices fell!
