There it is, dropping like Newton's apple. We never really expected the price of gas to fall so sharply again.
Triangle drivers are paying an average $2.97 for regular today — finally, our first time below $3 in a long time. That's a whopping drop of 96 cents in the past month, and 40 cents in just the past week.
* If you'll just be driving around town, why splurge on a full tank today? Each gallon will be cheaper tomorrow.
* If you're leaving town, why waste your money in the high-price Triangle? Gas is a lot cheaper across most of North Carolina, and in other cities across much of the United States.
We know that what goes down must go up again. But not yet — given the continuing slide in oil prices. Not yet.
How ya like them apples?
