Has anyone noticed that the price for a gallon of gas is 7 cents more per gallon at the Shell on Harper road than anywhere else? Even the gas station beside Dairy Queen that's like 100 yards away. What's the deal?

iirc; gas stations charge based on traffic, and how much they bought the gas for. So if its higher, they are probably getting more people stopping there, and hence are charging more.

you know there are like 7 gas stations up there right?

they also charger us more for snacks, cigs, beer and soda. Going down the street to another gas station can save you more then you think.

I agree that gas prices at Kroger is the cheapest. I do find it odd that the gas price at Kroger on Harper Rd is always a few cents higher than at the Kroger at Beckley crossing.

Gas stations all price check too. they check the prices of 3 around them and base their price on that. That's why Kroger's at different locations have different prices-- they go by stations around them not by all Kroger gas stations.

Whatever you do,don't buy gas at LG in Glen Daniel..everytime we do our vehicles spit and sputter and we don't get as good gas mileage as we do at other places.If I am around Go Mart,and I need gas I will stop there..better gas mileage for both vehicles..I hate LG!!

The reason the price is so high at the Shell on Harper Road is because the owner and most of the employees are dirty, filthy immigrants. They suck, and if you want your credit card send overseas go there. What a shit hole!
