Drivers enjoying the lower gas prices

READ MORE: Drivers enjoying the lower gas prices
With gas prices hovering around $4.00 a gallon, Steven Pence got used to paying over $100 to fill up his tank. He is smiling because when he went to fill up Wednesday, the pump stopped at half that. "I just filled up, I wasn't quite empty but I filled up and it was only $47," he said. In July, gas was over $4.00 a gallon and rising fast. Now, just a few months later, we are seeing the lowest prices in over two years. So what are we likely to see in the months ahead? Certified Financial Planner, Ross Marino isn't quite sure. "It's been going down recently, unless something changes dramatically, it may keep going down for a while. But just like we saw a few months ago, it could turn on a dime, and six months later it may be a whole different world," said Marino. But until things change, Marino said take advantage of the low prices. "It really is good news. It's good for the consumer and it's good for businesses. So go be in a good mood and go do some holiday shopping.”
