      Gas prices take another dip

      COLUMBIA (WACH)--Gas prices have fallen for the second straight week in Columbia.

      According to ColumbiaGasPrices.com the average price for a gallon of regular gasoline has fallen 2.3 cents to $3.03 per gallon.

      The national average has fallen 2.6 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.29 per gallon.

      "Even as oil and gasoline futures rallied after strong Black Friday sales reports and a drop in unemployment, retail gasoline prices have mover lower," according to GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "I have a suspicion that as we near 2012, we may see retail prices climb slightly higher again on upbeat holiday spending, which is indicative of a healthier economy. If we remember back to last year, positive holiday sales also led to higher gasoline prices as Christmas approached, which may play out again this year," DeHaan added.
