GAS PRICES DROP AGAIN

COEUR D'ALENE – North Idaho gas prices have reached a 3-year low, dipping below the $2-a-gallon mark for regular unleaded.

Seven gas stations in the Coeur d'Alene metro area dropped below the $2 mark over the weekend and have stayed at $1.99, these are the lowest prices in the state and the lowest since the fall of 2005 according to AAA Idaho.

The prices are good news to farmers, some are buying and storing gas, others are waiting to see if diesel prices will do the same.

Nationwide surveys Sunday showed Kansas City had the lowest average price per gallon at $1.95, while the national average was reported at $2.41
