Some parts of the Mountain State are seeing gasoline prices as low as $1.49 a gallon for regular gas.

Gasoline was $1.49 in Elizabeth and $1.47 in Parkersburg Saturday.

Over the weekend the price per gallon in Spencer was $1.89.

People are excited as their pockets are filling with savings from low gas prices, and it seems like those savings are going to grow.

"We are just seeing the price of gas continue to drop. Out of 33 days that we looked at the stock market, 31 of them the barrel has went down," said Crissy Gray, supervisor of the AAA District Office in Charleston.

"We are seeing people take a lot shorter trips, but they are taking more frequent trips, so that is really helping out too in the economy aspect because they are going out they are traveling," Gray said.

It's not just minivans and pick-ups on the roads with these cheap prices. Some experts say even when the temperature rises, don't expect to much rise at the pump.

"You are going to see gas go up just a little bit with the changing of the blends and with the travel, but we are not going to see a significant increase, we're not going to see the mid-$2 to $3 a gallon that we have in the past," Gray said.
