It's not cheap filling up at the gas station.
"It's pushing over 100 dollars," said Jim Gianniny.
One-hundred dollars just to fill up his Tahoe. Gianniny is happy to see gas prices not rising.
"We think it's wonderful. We even traveled from West Virginia to take advantage of these low gas prices," he said.
Gas prices have been pretty steady in our area and drivers are not complaining.
"I'd like to see it go lower," said Cathy Hill.
With the holidays coming up and drivers hitting the highway, we spoke to AAA manager, Martha Meade, about expected prices at the pump for the upcoming season.
"Well, good news for motorists. We think that gas prices will continue to retreat, even as we go into the holidays," she said. "We do not anticipate them going up in the foreseeable future."
When TV3 went out in the community, we found the cheapest gas at the Exxon and Sheetz located on Berryville Pike, as well as at Martin's located on Gateway Place. The total was $3.25 for a gallon of unleaded gas.
"For this time in age, I think that's pretty good, but I'm an old guy and I know that when it gets up in those real high numbers we've never seen before, it's not likely to return to $1.50 a gallon, ever," said Gianniny.
The average for a gallon of unleaded gas is $3.29 in Winchester, which is $0.23 cheaper than this time six months ago. If this trend continues, there may actually be some hope for Gianniny.
