Relief at the Pump

I try to be a cup-half-full person, but it’s certainly been challenging of late. Yesterday’s free-for-all at the NYSE left everyone a little off-kilter. Seeing the Dow below 10,000 was extremely sobering. A late rally left the index down by just 370 overall, though, not too bad considering overseas markets all seemed to fare so poorly. Markets look to be rebounding somewhat today, so hopefully the worst is behind us.

One major piece of good news is that gas prices will likely continue to decline, a welcome respite. I don’t know that I’ll leave the bike in the garage at this point, but it will certainly be a nice change of pace not to despair every time I fill up.
