Pine Belt gas prices plummet

While gas prices continue to fall around the nation, and the average price per gallon for regular unleaded being $2.60-per-gallon, residents in portions of the Pine Belt are enjoying some of the lowest prices in the country.

Prices could be found in several locations in Hattiesburg and Petal Wednesday at around 50 cents below the national average.

At the Kash King on Hwy 49 north in Hattiesburg, drivers were having a tough time believing what they were seeing as the price was under $2.

Lines were long, but motorists didn't seem to mind the wait. At nearby stations business was considerably slower.
