Gas Prices Continue to Plummet

VERONA, Va. (WHSV) -- Paying less at the pump, at least at some places in the Valley.

But the question remains, will the relief at the pump last?

According to AAA, yes.

AAA said it expects gas prices nationally to continue to fall through the end of the year, but also says you'll see some day-to-day variations in areas throughout the country.

Just off Interstate 81 in Verona Thursday afternoon, gas was $2.74 a gallon.

That's well below the national and even the state averages.

Even cheaper in fact, than the lowest reported gas price on gasbuddy.com.

Even with prices in the Valley consistently below three dollars, prices at the pump are still subject to sudden change and that's a trend that customers can count on.

"It's just confusing because it goes up every other day. It's like up and down. You never know what it's going to be, it just goes up and down so much. So in this little area we keep watching the pumps for the best prices and just use that," said Brenda Salcedo.

Salcedo also said gas at the station in Verona was $2.68 the day before.

While gas is up six cents a day later, it's still not a bad deal, relatively speaking, of course.
