Most Northeast Miss. gas prices still under $3
The good news is that most prices are still under $3 a gallon. Folks in Ripley and Oxford are paying the most at $3.07 a gallon.
That matches the statewide average. The national average is $3.22 a gallon.
The bad news is that Tupelo doesn’t have the title of having the lowest gas price in the state. That goes to Southaven at $2.83.
But Sam’s Club in Tupelo is right behind at $2.84, which also happens to be the lowest price in Northeast Mississippi, at least for now.
Murphy Express on West Main Street in Tupelo, which had been the low-price leader for several weeks, is at $2.89, along with its neighbors on the corner, Dodge’s Store and J’s Mart. Enter conspiracy theory comments below….
Anyway, here are prices elsewhere in the region:
- Amory $3.03
- Belden $2.89
- Booneville $2.89
- Corinth $2.98
- Fulton $2.95
- Pontotoc $2.96
- Sherman $2.87
- Starkville $3.04
- Tupelo $2.89 (using Kroger at Crosstown as the benchmark price)
