Gas Prices Down, Way Down in Some Areas

BURLINGTON — Hundreds of thousands of Americans are packing up to hit the road. Here's a pleasant bit of information: gas prices are down. In fact, in some places prices are much lower than you might expect.
In Alamance County there's a good, old-fashioned, full-scale gas war raging!
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. There are several such stations this year in Alamance County, at Interstate-40 exits 150 and 152.
Motorist Henry Bullock says he's always looking for a bargain at the pumps.
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 introduce themselves to holiday travelers.
Station workers say Dillon is exactly right. The company that owns that station wants to lure new customers in.
