Lower gas and oil prices have made me very happy and saved Americans plenty of money, however this news could even be bigger! The new year has seen a pizza war break out among the major chains.

Pizza Hut and Papa John's have started the year with new low-priced offers for their pizza.

Pizza Hut, the world's largest pizza chain,has an offer of a medium pizza with one topping for $5 as long they buy at least one other item such as breadsticks, soft drinks, wings or a second pizza also for $5.

Papa John's is offering customers who buy a large pizza at regular price the chance to buy a second for only 50 cents.
