Head- turner of the year....



US 79 in Rockdale was a chiropractor’s delight on e Friday afternoon in June as heads snapp ed almost all the way around to gawk at the ‘price of gas’ at Rockdale Cefco. Except it wasn’t really $7.89. The convenience store was installing a new digital gas pric e si gn and when turned on for the first time it defaulted on the final three digits. Actually price on that day was $3.59 for regular unleaded and it’s fallen about 50 cents since then in Rockdale to begin 2012 just above the $3-per gallon level.
