I thought this bailout was supposed to make the stock markets go up (albeit temporarily)? Isn't that what you said, Mr.Bush?
Well, I guess this $700B bailout was an even bigger waste of money than I thought it would be!

Now maybe people will realize that investment alone is not the be-all and do-all of living.

Crude oil is now below 90USD per gallon. I wonder how soon we'll see this at the pumps?

Probably not long.
Diesel has finally gone below $4 where I am in the past week.


On topic, darn. I wanted to see it drop below 10000 on live TV. Oh well.
(I was actually expecting it to happen last week...)

Pfft, maybe in y'all's neck o' the woods. I get immediate gratification when prices go up and down. Saw gas for less than $3.10 today for the first time in a long time...

i'm guessing it'll probably stop the slide around 8k or if it's really bad, lower 7k....which with how the bailout seems to be enacted so far, we might see that 7k.


/glad i still have a job
