Can you read the gas price on the Quik Trip sign on Wentzville Parkway in Wentzville,Missouri?  It says $2.69 - That was last weekend... The price on this Quik Trip sign below was taken this morning at the station on Bryan Road in O'Fallon, Missouri...  (These 2 stations usually have comparable prices.)   What a difference a few days make!

No this isn't O'Fallon, MO....... But, it was a fun time. The date:  Sunday October 19, 2008 The Place:  Eckerts Fun Farm Where:  Millstadt, IL. The Event:  Apple Picking with the Grandkids If you have never been apple picking, like me, then you are missing a real fun time.  The weather was absolutely wonderful.  We could not have had a better day to enjoy watching them fire pumpkins out of one huge cannon, or picking apples.  Other fun things going on were pony and camel rides, pig races, picking you own pumpkin and going thru their version of a haunted barn. The best part of it all is it is just a short drive from O'Fallon and in a couple of the pictures you can see the Arch in St. Louis.

OMG, are my eyes deceiving me??  Wait a minute and I'll rub them once again.  NOPE they're not! My morning started early today.  And it was a real eye opener when I drove by one of the gas stations close to my home.  As I always do, I checked the prices and couldn't believe my eyes.  I had to stop and take a picture because I am sure that people would find it hard to believe.  Check it out!   We have been seeing gas prices drop multiple times a day so I can hardly wait until tonight to see where they will be.

It's been so long since I've seen gas prices at this rate that I wasn't sure if I was seeing correctly.   But, here it is - gas prices under $3.00/gallon in O'Fallon, Missouri!  This is a photo of the Quik Trip on Bryan Road. I hope this is just the beginning of lower prices to come...  :) , e-PRO Service you Expect from a Realtor you can Trust! www.SelectMyHome.net    314-640-7061 (cell)   Prudential Alliance Realtors   636-887-3554 (office) Debi.Ernst@PrudentialAlliance.com

 Fire Prevention Week begins tomorrow October 5, 2008 and will run thru October 11, 2008 in OFallon MO and St Charles County MO.  Fire prevention week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 conflagration that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres.  The fire began on October 8 but continued into and did most of its damage on October 9, 1871. We are moving into the time of year that more cooking is being done inside the home and less outside.  We are fortunate here that we have milder winters than a lot of places across the U.S. so we can still cook on our gas and charcoal grills.  Please leave your charcoal grills outside, do not bring them in the house. The National Fire ...

                    I've been keeping my eyes on oil prices lately.  Right now, oil prices have dropped more than $7.00!  Prices are back under $100 a barrel.  The lowest gas price around here is in O'Fallon, Missouri.  It is priced at $3.48/gallon! I know that they can go back up.  It's happened a zillion times in the past.  However, for now, I'm happy that they're going in the right direction...  :) For all your real estate needs contact: Debi Ernst        www.SelectMyHome.net          314-640-7061       Ryco Realty Group      636-978-3912       Debi@RycoRealtyGroup.com
