Paragould Residents Filling Up At Near $1 a Gallon

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Filling up for $1 or near it a gallon is a reality for some Paragould residents as the new Murphey Express opens in similar fashion to one late last year in Jonesboro.

But the Citgo station across the road isn't rolling over: they've dropped prices to compete as well.

A similar incident happened on Stadium Blvd. in Jonesboro last year, with gas dropping below $1.00 a gallon. Just like before, drivers are lining up in large numbers to get the low-price petrol.

Region 8 News snapped some photos of the battle as it neared the $1 mark.
