  • Return to $1 gas? Energy prices evaporate - Oil prices hit four-year lows as employers cut the highest number of jobs in 34 years. The continuing decline in prices is so dramatic and so sudden that it is raising the prospect that gas prices could soon fall below $1 a gallon.(MSNBC; Dec. 5, 2008)
