Fuel prices reach record February highsPublished 12:28am Tuesday, February 28, 2012
Additionally, Ingram said gas prices increase because motorists are not “price shopping” for gas.
“We all need to be diligent in our efforts to buy the lowest price fuel in our normal travel area, for every gas purchase we make,” Ingram said. “If we do this, it will create some competition in the gasoline marketplace, and prices will drop considerably. However, if we continue to reward stations for having higher priced gas, the prices will continue to rise.”
According to AAA, the least expensive gas in the Selma area was available at the Marathon station 4813 U.S. Highway 80 East. The station had a reported regular unleaded gas price of $3.549 per gallon.
