Tupelo – Tupelo! – has lowest gas price in state

When’s the last time the lowest gas price in Northeast Mississippi, much less the state, was in Tupelo?gas_pumps

Yeah, I don’t recall, either. But according to, that’s the case.

At least for now, the cheapest gas is at the Murphy Express on West Main Street that opened a week ago. It’s been posting low gas prices all week, forcing at  the Dodge’s across the street and J’s Store to lower their prices to a similar range.

For example this morning, Murphy was at $2.58. J’s Store is $2.69 and Dodge’s is $2.71 (cash only; credit is $2.81. What’s up with that?)

Meanwhile, prices around Tupelo are all over the place, from Sam’s at$2.73, $2.86 at Kroger to $2.89 at several other stations. And note that all the prices in the region are under $3. When’s the last time that happened, too?
