A Dublin church group plans to gather pump-side Saturday and pray for the gas prices to drop.

It's an effort started by the Beacon of Light Christian Center in Dublin.
"I believe if we come together and pray as a community we can really make something happen," says the church's pastor, Marshall Mabry.
Mabry says he can remember when gas jumped from under $1 to $1.50 and says, now, with prices reaching almost $4, he says he plans to ask God for help.
And this isn't the first time his congregation has gathered at Kroger's gas pumps.
"It's the third time," he says, "I want to start a movement. I want this to go from Dublin to Macon, from Macon to Atlanta and all over the country."
"I can't see how a country like ours, that could put people on the moon like it's nothin' and people in outer space like it's nothin' can't make some kind of fuel that would run in these cars that wouldn't cost very much money," says Thomas Didonato, who paid $3.64 a gallon on Monday.
Didonato was just one of a line of people who paid nearly $4 per gallon.
"It's not a white issue, not a black issue, it's a green issue," says Pastor Mabry of the escalating prices.
"If it doesn't drop down to nothin' but ten cents, I'm happy with that. But what I really want to believe God to do is drop down $1.50, hey, I'm glad with that, too," says the pastor.
The group will start prayer at 9 a.m. Saturday at Kroger on Hillcrest Parkway in Dublin.
Pastor Mabry says he hopes it'll kick off a first Saturday prayer event every month, and they'll see a drop in costs at the pump soon.
