    oil prices fall in relation to the trading at the NYMEX and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Major Hedge Funds who were up to their necks in oil futures this summer had to bail on them when the larger forces i.e. stock's crashing forced their selling. They had to sell because the people who put there money in hedge funds began pulling their money out. So basically the price of oil is manipulated by a few multi-billion dollar hedge funds, and does not reflect the true cost of oil. What this means for "Joe Locator" is that in the near term 6-12 months, the price of gas will continue to fall towards 2.00. yippie!
