Gas Prices Continue To Fall

Gas prices are creating a money crisis for a lot of drivers, but there's encouraging news.

Not only is the national average now below three dollars a gallon, but in Lexington, drivers are paying less than they did a year ago.

The national average hasn't been below three dollars since the beginning of February.

Analysts expect prices to fall further if oil goes down to fifty dollars a barrel.

Right now, oil prices are back over $73 a barrel on expectations OPEC will cut production at a meeting this week.

Lexington has the cheapest price at the pump in Kentucky's largest cities, at $2.76 a gallon, followed closely by Louisville.

Covington and Owensboro are in the low $2.80s. The Ashland area has the highest price at $2.98 a gallon.
