...isn't always good for the gander. Take, for instance, the recent drop in the interest rate. It's good for those who want to borrow money. It's not so good for those who utilize savings accounts and money markets.
The same thing is applicable to gas prices. It's not so good for the end consumer, but someone is making money, so it's good for them.
Since tomorrow's Thanksgiving, I guess we should be thankful that sometimes we're the goose and sometimes we're the gander.
