So now we have Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years with gas prices being down toward $2.25/gal for those traveling. Will more people travel? Will these low prices kill plans for marketing electric vehicles in the short run? But the question on most people’s mind probably is “Will these prices stay this low (or possibly go lower)?” Some of that may depend on what OPECs geo-polictical ambitions are. Some have said OPEC has allowed these low prices as a way to take a whack at Russia’s market share on crude oil – and there certainly seems to have been a negative effect on that nation by these low prices (low crude barrel prices=> low per gallon gas prices). Keep your eye’s open and we’ll see how things change on gas prices with this new year….
