The price of oil plunged below $100 per barrel for the first time in more than two months, and a drop in gasoline prices can't be far behind. Oil fell by more than four percent after a weak jobs report added to recent signs that the global economy is weakening, meaning demand for oil should slacken. At the same time, there is mounting evidence that world oil supplies are growing. (AP Photo/Hasan Jamali, File)
