Most Northeast Miss. gas prices still under $3

with one comment

Some good news/bad news about gas prices in Northeast Mississippi. Pumping gas image

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)
