Local gas prices
By Karen Ramsey


October 18, 2006

I am very much hoping to see local gasoline prices take a downhill slide here very soon. In the last two weeks, there have been several national news stories about lower gas prices, yet locally we still pay more than $3.00 per gallon. Just last night, it was reported that the new national average for a gallon of regular unleaded is down to $2.23. I understand that we normally pay more than the national average, but something tells me we are getting squeezed these days by local gas station owners. It's time we got a break!
