    Gas Prices Literally Fall in Athens, Georgia


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     apriljames drives by this gas station everyday while on her way to her college campus in Athens, Georgia, on March 6. 'When I saw the sign down, I just thought the employees were changing the prices, but then I noticed it had actually fallen. The wind has been pretty high for a couple of days. There was rain yesterday, but not a significant amount. But the wind honestly kept some of us up at night,' she said.

    She say she was in awe when she saw the fallen gas price sign. 'I had never seen that before. Last week a small tree fell over in my apartment complex, but I'd never seen the gas prices sign down.'

    Gas prices did fall slightly last week for the first time since December, the Energy Information Administration reported Monday. Experts say that drivers can expect a little bit of relief at the pump this month after dealing with record gas prices in February.

    The sign displaying gas prices at a Shell station in Athens,Ga., was blown down by heavy winds some time between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
