Gas prices dip, not enough for drivers

June 29, 2004

Albany-- Gas prices are continuing to decline. But, it is not quite the plunge that people want.

Gas prices at the Woodall's on North Slappey dropped two cents just before the lunchtime rush. It was $1.79 Tuesday morning. By noon, a gallon of unleaded was $1.77.

Gas prices have been on a downward trend, but drivers still think fondly of the good old days. Chris Luckey says, "I can remember when it was $1.05. I am ready for it to get back to that point."

He will probably have to wait awhile. Gas prices are still expected to drop--but not that much. A gas station worker says she expects one more price cut before the cost of gasoline evens out.
