Good Friday Gas Prices Vary Across The Area; Cheaper Than Last Year

March 29, 2013

There are lots of people on the road today in Escambia County because of both the Good Friday holiday and the last weekday of spring break.

Exactly how much it costs to fill your tank will vary by almost 20 cents per gallon depending on where you purchase gas. The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded late Thursday afternoon was $3.50 in Escambia County.

A quick survey of area gas prices found that same gallon of gas varied across the area: $3.38 at the Murphy Gas on Highway 29,  $3.39 at the Raceway in Cantonment, $3.43 at the Tom Thumb in Molino, $3.49 at the BP in Century,  and $3.55 at the BP in Davisville

The state average Thursday was $3.65 per gallon. Last year, the same gallon of gas was $3.80.
