|Stu is seen here reporting from a local gas station in your area...|
GLENN: Let me go to Stu who's our expert. He's been out at the gas stations. Stu, where you're at, how much is gas -- how much is gas right now at the gas station where you're at, Stu?
STU: Glenn, a gallon of gas is under $4 a gallon. Just as I'm walking out now past the pumps. No, it's under $4 a gallon. I mean, they're giving away, Glenn.
GLENN: Shirley wanted to know if you thought that the -- if you thought the gas crisis was over, are they going to flop back up and down?
STU: Oh, no, this is completely over, Glenn. You know, look. You remember -- remember the -- remember penny candy?
STU: And remember -- now they're at dollar stores, which is so expensive. But this, gas prices now is more like the penny candy. You take a big, you know, handful as you walk out. You don't even think about how many you have because it doesn't matter. The price is so cheap now. It's under $4 a gallon.
GLENN: So I just want to make this clear. So you believe the price falling down, it will never go back up?
STU: Oh, no. It's impossible, Glenn. With this momentum, it's been an entire week of dropping.
GLENN: What's been causing the price to go down?
STU: What's causing the price to go down? Well, actually let's talk to an everyday person here. I'm here with Samuel. Samuel, how have the gas prices been affecting you?
VOICE: Oh, it's been great. I actually took a day off from work, excited today to go out and go driving around.
STU: You are saving so much money on these gas prices, you don't even have to work anymore?
VOICE: I do, but I took the day off today.
GLENN: This is starting to sound like an infomercial.
STU: I'm sorry, Glenn, the gas pumps are so loud, there's these drills that go, jeeep, jeeep, they go off and I can't hear anything. Sir, some people have suggested crazy ideas like drilling for more oil domesticly. What do you think about that solution?
VOICE: Well, that's one of the reasons why I'm so excited is that this proves, this energy crisis here, this proves that, you know, the prices can come down and we didn't have to drill one bit. We didn't drill at all. So basically no drilling and the prices go down, which means if we would drill, prices would go up. It's basic supply and demand economics.
STU: Wow. There you go, Glenn.
GLENN: Wait a minute. That doesn't make any sense whatsoever. The demand is going to keep going up if we don't drill. Of course the price is going to continue to grow.
STU: Unfortunately I'm going to have to cut you off because right now Samuel looks very concerned about the environment. Samuel, what's your passion?
VOICE: Yeah, look, I'm very excited right now because this also means without all this drilling that we can save oceans, you know, the environment, we can save --
GLENN: How are you going to save oceans?
VOICE: Oceans and seas, we can save bays. We've got ponds.
GLENN: How do you go without? What is gas prices dropping a dime, how is that saving the oceans and the seas?
STU: What else would he save, Samuel?
CALLER: I guess he's not getting it. But you don't drill, you're also saving the canals.
STU: Don't forget about the waterfalls and tributaries.
GLENN: I don't --
STU: I don't know what's so funny about saving the Delta.
GLENN: I don't even know how it safes my gas going down a dime. Gas is Gooding to go up. I may stay down a little while, may go down more but then it's going to come back up because we're not drilling for our own oil.
STU: Well, there you go, Glenn. You heard it from the experts. Samuel from the gas station who says that we can save -- what was it, Samuel?
VOICE: Look, if you want to keep the puddles dirty, then that's your problem. I don't want that on my conscience.
GLENN: Oh, these gas prices are really taking this country by storm and it is so great. I think, I think maybe by tomorrow, because they have fallen for a week, I think maybe by tomorrow it will be time for Chuck Schumer to go ahead and announce that the energy crisis is over.
