Gas prices down 7 cents in W.Va.

Sep. 27, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

CHARLESTON -- Gasoline prices have fallen in West Virginia.

AAA East Central says the average price for a gallon of regular, unleaded gasoline fell about seven cents over the past week to nearly $3.87.

That's lower than the national average of about $3.81 and about 36 cents higher than gas prices in the state a year ago this week.

Prices range from about $3.79 in Parkersburg to more than $3.95 in Martinsburg.

RadioShack CEO Gooch steps down

FORT WORTH, Texas -- RadioShack CEO James Gooch has agreed to step down immediately and is leaving its board of directors, the struggling consumer electronics company said Wednesday.

Chief Financial Officer Dorvin Lively will serve as its interim CEO while it looks for a permanent replacement, the company said.

RadioShack Corp. said that it is in the process of hiring an executive search firm to help find a new CEO and that it may consider both internal and external candidates. In July, RadioShack posted an unexpected second-quarter loss and suspended its dividend. The chain's troubles are partly due to wider problems in the brick-and-mortar electronics industry and add fuel to the notion that selling consumer electronics in brick-and-mortar stores is becoming less and less viable.
