Does anyone else find this interesting...?
Let me outline it for ya:
-People freak out about the high price of gas.
-People buy less gas. (and less of everything because there's only so much room in the budget)
-Gas companies sell less gas. (and other companies sell less stuff)
-Companies see less profit.
-Companies freak out about lowered revenue.
-Investors freak out about lowered revenue.
-Gas prices drop.
-People buy more gas. (and other things)
If I have this straight, we're talking about basic supply & demand here...
Capitalism in our great free country at work!
