Thanks for the laugh! Sorry though, you are delusional!

Murphy didn't go into business to be able to one day come into El Dorado and sell you cheap gas. They went into business to make a PROFIT.

Sure, you might see them open up for a few weeks at low prices... But they will quickly settle in and keep the same price as everyone else. After all, if you are used to paying for it at one price, why drop the price?

Sorry, you're the delusional one. If Murphy opens up with low prices, the other stations will have to lower their prices just to keep any business at all. Then the "same price as everyone else" that you refer to will be much lower than before they opened. Sheesh...simple economics.

Murphy will still make a profit and hit the local gas cartel where it hurts. They've been operating on a greater profit margin due to being in cahoots with each other and all agreeing to go up and down together. Why do you think gas is higher here by as much as thirty cents a gallon than other cities around Arkansas?

They are SO BIG until they can't be threatened like the little man has been for too damn long! They won't allow the other guys to load gas at the refinery if they price below the other guys fuel prices! POLITICS here in this corrupt little shit hole!!!! Theres NO telling what kind of other road blocks the city is going to throw up to delay timely completion of the construction on this project! These guys are big enough and Murphy does too much for the city for them to show their ass on this one! They are going to put the hurt on the mafia and break up the price gouging of local residents with no industry people need that extra money to help make ends meet if you say 5 ,10,20,30 cents per gallon multiply it by the number of gallons and the number of people fueling over a period of time it is astronomical how much it calculates up to be that these thieves has stolen from poor people in a high unemployment area its time someone put a STOP to it! a penny a day dont sound like much but if you double it every day for thirty days its astronomical what it adds up to be! These thieves has had a lavish lifestyle too long stealing I HOPE THEY PUT THE HURT ON THEM! City officals cant afford to start no shit with these guys Murphy can put the hurt on them if they do!! It would be funny if city officals tried and murphy moved its headquarters elsewhere and shut this entire operation down imagine that LMAO IM so glad they are moving in LONG TIME OVERDUE!!

Wait and see what happens. It's possible Murphy USA could throw in with the local cartel.

They average abount 10 cents cheaper than other providers in neighboring towns. Thus causes the average of all local gas prices to go down. Expect the same here.

Just come back on here 60 days after they open... and we'll see if they are causing the others to drop their price, or if they are matching it.

That is more Wal-mart regulated. And there are certain stipulations to that. Usually that discount is used in conjunction with a Wal-mart credit card of gift card.

The other question on this gas station will be, whether it will be a wal-mart partnership or independently Murphy owned. If independent kiss that discount goodbye.

So, you just contradicted your previous post. You don't even have to shop to get it: it's posted on the freaking sign in every neighboring town! No stipulations. Awesome job, dumbass.

All USA's are independently owned...but they are in partnership with WalMart only for the discount with WM cards. Always amazes me the people that seem to make posts on here know the least about what they are talking about. There is a Murphy USA website anyone can go to that is very informative.

AT LEAST they are a open book with prices on their website!! The mafia around here gets behind closed doors and fix gas prices! Long overdue for a investigation of their actions!

I think it's been tried and unfortunately nothing found. They're smart enough to keep their tracks well covered but have made themselves wealthy at our expense. If Murphy USA makes them get right (and I hope it does) I'm afraid it's too late and they've made enough for generations to come.

Need a federal investigation. Look at the prices of gas in places that are a hundred miles from a refinery. Unbelievable that we have been gouged like this for so long.
