Down go the gas prices

REGIONAL

What a difference a month or two makes! Gas prices in the area are creeping down towards $2.

In some Globe West towns, prices have already dropped below that mark. The Sunoco on Elliott Street at the intersection of Route 9 in Newton is at $1.99, and so is the Gulf on South Main Street in Bellingham, according to gasbuddy.com.

Meanwhile, near the Globe West offices, the Gulf and Getty stations at the corner of Speen Street and Cochituate Road are at $2.13, while the Mobil across the street is still at $2.19. Only recently, those prices had been perilously close to $3.

The lowest recorded price in the area, according to gas price spotter websites, is in Revere, where Prime Energy on Squire Road is offering a price of $1.95.
