DALLAS — Dip it low, pick it up slow. Yep, the Stock Market took a plunge this week. Actually, a nosedive — falling more than 500 points, but eventually ended down 249 points. Talk about a roller coaster!
Also falling — the price of oil, which is below $27 a barrel. While all this is really bad news for the economy, those on the road are revved up because that means cheaper gas prices, baby!
“They are amazing! I’m doing a lot more traveling. As you can see, I have a pretty big vehicle, so it definitely helps me out every week” said driver, David Crockett.
“I tell ya, I never thought I would see it go down this far again,” Jay Nickless said.
According to AAA, gas prices are the cheapest they’ve been in over a decade with the national average at $1.88
“It says $1.42 over there, I’m actually paying $1.39,” Crockett told NewsFix.
In Denton, folks are buying bargain gas and hitting the road with a smile.
“Now, I don’t know that it’s affected the airlines yet, so we will see if that happens,” Nickless said
Yeah, we haven’t seen airline prices drop much over the last few months, but Southwest Airlines will be releasing its 4th quarter earnings Thursday. Want to bet they’re gonna be flying high?
