Gas dips below $3 a gallon in parts of Northeast Ohio

ABC news channel 5 Cleveland -- Northeast Ohio travelers are smiling a little wider these days. Gas prices have dropped throughout the month of December dipping below $3 a gallon for the first time in a year.

"Believe me it is the most exciting thing I saw today," said Waheeb Zahriyeh who manages a gas station on Memphis Avenue in Cleveland where gas is selling for $2.98. "Really people coming in and throwing high fives at you," he said.

Prices are down around 4.5 percent in December. The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was $3.14 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That's 21 cents lower than a week ago, and down 35 cents from this time last month.

Beware fellow Ohioans.
Greedway is chomping at the bit, ready for their holiday spike.
If Chicago spot wholesale goes up EVEN A LITTLE BIT today, expect a spike tomorrow, back to $3.299.
Glad I paid $2.759 Friday, and topped off yesterday.

Gas dips below $3 a gallon in parts of Northeast Ohio and many other areas have gasoline just under $3/gallon too!
Lower fuel prices for the economy to recover that much faster than what 'coming out of the closet' Sneeky will ever do for this country. 'Coming out of the closet' Sneeky's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the jobs are Not here. Sneeky's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the country and population and the job numbers continue to be down! There Not be much cheaper fuel prices for the US. More refineries are Not the answer, Stop exporting fuel is!
There is one ARCO gas station here at $2.99/gal and may many more fuel prices follow to much more reasonable levels! The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon - *$3, *$3.50/gallon or *$4.00 is Not the new low!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

It's sad that we get excited about gas under $3 per gallon. It wasn't that long ago that we were outraged at that price.

I don't understand why Ohio is so excited about gasoline at $2.98 a gallon. Didn't Bush have gasoline at $1.81 a gallon just before he left office in Jan 2009.

But then they were excited to vote for O'bummer. So I guess it figures.
