Gas price wars

Gas station owners in Tabor City tell say that since they're only miles from South Carolina, which has a lower gas tax than North Carolina, they have to lower their prices in order to compete with stores across the state line.

As a result, drivers say they've noticed a gas price "war" between stores in Tabor City -- one store is even selling gas at $3.70 a gallon.

While the prices are helping customers save money, it's causing stores to lose money.

One store owner says he's losing five cents a gallon.
