Cheapest Gas in Region 8

TRUMANN, AR -- With the price of gas constantly on the rise, residents in Region 8 are looking for any ray of hope to help ease the pain at the pump.

In most of Region 8, gas prices are more than three dollars.  In Jonesboro, gas prices range from $2.98 to about $3.05 a gallon.  But at one small privately owned gas station in Truman-- gas prices are surprisingly lower.

 "It's the cheapest in the area.  If people knew in Jonesboro how much it was here they'd make the trip down here," said

"We keep everything where people can afford to go riding and have a good time," said Tammy Mccorkle.

Liberty Deli and Market is the cheapest gas station we found in Region 8 coming in at $2.89 a gallon.

"We just opened the store up and we're trying to keep it so the people in the county and stuff can get cheaper gas," said Mccorkle.

"He stays right below everybody because he's new to the area and he wants to pull as much business as he can," said Sharon Simpson.

Other gas stations around Region 8 have many different prices.

"I they're terrible.  I think it's pure greed," said Simpson.

Since January gas prices in Arkansas have risen an average of about one cent a day  making it almost impossible to fill up for some drivers.

"We have two vans and when you start to fill up a van it takes a lot of money.  We save money by buying our gas here," said Simpson.
