Gas Consumption Way Down...

Gas consumption is way down...

We are back to gas consumption levels of 1998.  No way the price is back to 1998.  To me this indicates a lot of demand destruction.

Thoughts on US Fuel Use Decline

You might want to switch over to the following already-existing forum discussion on the same topic, where I've laid some charts out.
