Who else isn't exactly thrilled about gas prices?

Granted, over all it's a good thing to pay less for gas, but does anyone else know what this means for our economy in the future or for people who work on an oil rig? just something to think about...


EDIT:

Some of you have taken my post as me saying DONT BE HAPPY ABOUT OIL PRICES. I'm not saying that. If this doesn't affect you then of course you are happy about gas and I'm happy FOR YOU. I'm not trying to make any feel guilty or sorry for me. MANY people aren't aware what dropping oil prices even means beyond the cost it takes to fill up their gas tanks or even WHY gas is cheap.

And based on the replies I'm clearly not the only one concerned. Thankfully this isn't a permanent job for my husband but it's one we are depending on at the moment. So if you feel attacked or some kind of way about my post then re read it.

DH is waiting on a job he was promised with Exxon. I'm not thrilled about gas prices.

My husband went from busy, to possibly unemployed overnight. I'm not happy with oil prices. At all.

Me. My husband and I both work in the oilfield. I've never had to worry about losing my job, but if prices keep dropping it could be a possibility.

It's the cheapest per gallon I've seen in years, but we're expect to get as much as a $1.00 per gallon increase. I don't pay for gas, but it'll be very hard on the economy.

My husband was an oilfield worker in Casper WY. He got laid-off and we had to move to another state. The most super happy about the gas prices, just wish jobs weren't in jeopardy!

It's cute that you think that. They are fine. Do you think rig workers got paid MORE when gas prices rose? lol!!

Every positive has a negative.  I'm sure not going to feel guilty about filling up my gas tank when it's sometimes less than 2$ a Gallon.
