There's a good, old-fashioned gas war in Alamance County.
BURLINGTON — Hundreds of thousands of Americans arepacking up to hit the road. Here's a pleasant bit of information: gasprices are down. In fact, in some places prices are much lower than youmight expect.

In Alamance County there's a good, old-fashioned, full-scale gas warraging!

Dollar-a-gallon gasoline is not often found these days, but when it is,the station selling it is an oasis for the cost-conscious car owner. Thereare several such stations this year in Alamance County, at Interstate-40exits 150 and 152.

Motorist Henry Bullock says he's always looking for a bargain at thepumps.

Motorist Connye Dillon says she's seen some low prices elsewhere,but not like these.

Dillon says it is a smart move for station owners to introducethemselves to holiday travelers.

Station workers say Dillon is exactly right. The company that owns thatstation wants to lure new customers in.
