Dealers say they sell more gas guzzlers and fewer economical vehicles -- like hybrids -- when fuel prices drop. Thursday's prices reached a five-year low in Byram, at $1.77 a gallon.
That might be why so many shoppers we talked to were from outside the Jackson area.
Dean drove all the way from Collinsville, just north of Meridian.
There's a lot of deals, after-Christmas deals, and people are doing returns and things. The family just wanted to get out today. Been kinda
cooped up with the rainy weather," Dean said.
Some just can't resist the urge, even if they've already shopped a lot this holiday season.
"I don't think I can get shopped out. I like shopping," Moore said. "It's pretty much a hobby, so anytime they're having a sale, you can catch me here."
