SD&G – It’s something many of us haven’t seen for a while – gas prices with three digits.

The price at the pump fell below the $1 per liter mark on Tuesday with a station in Long Sault, selling regular unleaded for 99.3 cents a liter.

Other stations in Cornwall followed suit Wednesday with prices hovering around 99.3 to 99.9.

Crude oil has taken a drop in recent days and was down five cents Wednesday at midday at $39.15 U.S. per barrel.

A report Wednesday from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed crude oil inventory was down 5.5 million barrels last week. But gasoline inventories were up 1.6 million barrels, causing some relief at the pumps south of the border.
