Gas Prices Dropping

Gas prices in North Carolina could soon be in for a major drop. That's what one fuel price tracking organization predicts. The Oil Price Information Service said Tuesday gas prices could drop to under $2.00 a gallon as early as this weekend. They site a reduction in fuel consumption and a lack of impact on oil operations due to Hurricane Wilma as reasons for the predicted drop. However, not everyone thinks a steep drop in prices is imminent. Some convenience store owners say prices dropping below $2.00 is just being too optimistic.
