Small Town Seeing Unusually Low Gas Prices


PARIS - Low gas prices have many flocking to Edgar County.

On Monday, several stations were charging as low as $2.87 per gallon. At the town's Casey's General Store on W. Jasper St., employees say they've been seeing nearly double the average amount of customers. Worker Nancy Michaels says they've come close to running out of gas.

Michaels says they aren't sure why the cost is so low, but it's been steadily declining for days. Many customers are bringing extra containers to fill up.
