Meanwhile, back home, they're having something close to price wars between the Wal*Mart supercenter, the grocery store, and the other gas stations. The grocery store even had a special sale:
A two-hour sale on gasoline packed the pumps at Buehler's Buy-Low in Tell City Thursday evening. Customers in cars, pickup trucks and even a camper or two waited for up to 45 minutes to purchase gas at $1.49 per gallon, nearly 40 cents below the regular price. Rick Wilgus, manager of the Tell City store, said all of Buehler's stores participated in the 5 to 7 p.m. special. Approximately 2,700 gallons of gasoline was sold during the period.(From the Perry County News.)
And this morning the price on base here in San Diego was $2.20...county average is $2.36.
