What's with the gas prices?

So it was last Saturday morning, I filled up at a local station for $2.79/gallon to get to PodCamp Boston.
 
Monday night on the way home, driving by the same station, the price had dropped to $2.63.
 
Tuesday night on the way home from the Pacer running workout, the price had dropped to $2.53.
 
Tonight coming home from the train station, the price had dropped again to $2.49.
 
Let's see. What could be happening here?
Summer's over, kids back to school, no more vacation.
Election season is heating up, September primaries and November vote to control Congress.
 
Hmmm...
 
Big oil have already reaped excess profits. Maybe they decided to take the cost of living off the table to avoid the issue come Election Day?
 
No, that would smack of some grand scheme of a party conniving with Big Oil. But that doesn't happen here in the USA.
 
Just thinking out loud...

I yearn for your same experience Steve! Filled up my rental car on Oahu yesterday and we were still at $3.31 (so on the neighbor islands it is higher). Then this morning, there was an article in our paper where the Advocates for Consumer Rights group is calling on our governor to reinstate the failed Hawaii gas cap law because "the oil companies have never departed from their historical pattern of gouging the people of Hawaii, even when global market forces indicate there is no justification for the high prices."
