ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — Gas prices are about to break through a barrier, a positive barrier, that hasn’t been broken in six months.

That would be sub- $3 a gallon prices at the gas pump.

We’re talking average, because prices at some area stations have already dropped below the $3 mark, down to $2.85 for regular unleaded according to analyst Patrick DeHaan with the price-tracking website

DeHaan says the flip side is that dropping gas prices reveal concern over the economy. “Speculators concerned that if we go back in to the recession the demand for oil will tumble and they’re getting out of oil in light of that fear.”

Prices throughout the St. Louis region have dropped 18 cents since last Monday, and DeHaan thinks that could continue for awhile before heading back up as the holidays approach.

    When I started reading al these comments I was hoping someone had a solution for the ridiculous price we pay for gas which absolutely ticks me off by the way. Now, I wonder if I am the only one gives a hoot about gas prices so I found my own solution. With a little effort have eliminated my gas expenses and now have more money for fun stuff. Check it out if you want or come up with a better plan; do something!
