Reactions to the recent rises in gasoline and diesel fuel are pretty much what you would expect, with new car purchasers eschewing gas guzzlers for more fuel efficient models left and right.

So perhaps MSN is right, and gas prices drop to about $1.15 a gallon again. MSN says it's not a fantasy. Here's why:
