Gas at the Irving Circle-K is ringing up at 2.77 a gallon.
That’s some of the cheapest in the state.
Drivings are lining up for it, too, and have been for much of the weekend.
Some are even filling up gas cans to take advantage of the deal.
Right now AAA reports the average price of gas in Eastern Maine is 3.05 a gallon.
In july, it hit a high of 4.14 a gallon.
The folks who stopped in Newport say 2.77 is the lowest they’ve seen anywhere around – a bargain they couldn’t afford to pass up.
Most of the drivers we talked to say they’ve changed their driving habits a lot in the last year.
But they doubt they’ll go back to their gas-guzzling ways, even at these prices.
