Gas Under $2 In Greenville!

It's a welcome sign for drivers--gas prices in Greenville have finally dipped below $2.00 a gallon.

At most stations the price went to $1.99 Thursday morning. Some stations outside of Greenville dropped to $1.95.

The drop comes as crude oil prices dipped to $55 a barrel, while some oil experts say $40 a barrel price is possible in the months ahead.

Prices have also dropped in other Eastern Carolina cities. In Kinston this morning prices went to $2.02 a gallon for gas. In Columbia gas dropped under $2 more than a week ago.

Triple A says the average price in the state is $2.19 a gallon, compared to $3.45 a month ago.

WITN News will have more on the latest price drop tonight at 5 & 6.

    OPEC is meeting, however, most of the oil we get right now comes from Canada? This is out of the areas east and west of the country there. You know, Anwar, is just one location. If windmills and solar are so life changing, why have untiliy companies not started putting them in yet? And the Boone Pickens guy, he sells windmills. What a nice advertisement, he has made millions on oil and still wants to make more on citizens. No wonder he favors wind. I am not saying we shouldn't use all forms to include nuclear, we just don't need to close current forms of energy to force us to using new forms. They should attract the car buyer on merrit. Is Monica Lewinski part of the old cabinet coming back?

    Why is Jacksonville still paying 2.12 and more? Are we driving more, or are we still pumping old gas? We seem to almost always be higher in this area.

    OPEC is meeting Nov.29th. We will see if the price stays low after that little 'get together'.

    I wished there was some way that we the American people could make it that our Congressmen and Senators could only serve 2 terms and out. That would help fix many issues that we are dealing with.

    Cheap gas for your soul? The media keeps your mind occupied with these little wins. I would rather pay $10 a gallon and keep my freedom. Arab countries are VERY happy with obama as pres they know their work will be done from within now. Thanks democrats.

    To Obama Snake Oil Co: You're preaching to the choir on this one, friend. I know full well the media made it their mission in life to blame Bush for everything they could for 8 years. They were able to do a pretty good job of convincing those who can't think for themselves of it, too. You don't have to convince me ! I hope you take solace in the fact [as I do] that for the next 4 years, Rush, Sean, Laura, Neil and Ann will be dogging Obama just as relentlessly as the libs dogged Bush. Take care ! Highest Regards, C
