That said, don't remove your name from the Prius waiting list quite so fast—the bargain barrels won't last. OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) plans to meet later this week and will most likely move to cut supplies. This is another way of saying "the Middle Eastern countries, plus Venezuela, are getting together this week to talk about how to increase the price of oil." I come from the camp that believes that higher gas prices are actually important to force big businesses to invest in alternative energies. If you want to see a "green" America sooner than later, lower gas prices are not necessarily a good thing. But for all the Joe Plumbers out there who've been hurt by soaring gas costs over the last five months, enjoy the price slump while it lasts. After all, Wall Street got a break—maybe the average American deserves a bit of one too. —Samantha Tagert
