Gas Prices Continue To Rise

April 9, 2008


Gas prices continue to rise across North Escambia, remaining more than a dime higher per gallon for regular unleaded than the cheapest Pensacola prices.

Tuesday morning, at least eight major Pensacola gas stations were at $3.21 per gallon for regular unleaded. The best price we found in the North Escambia area was $3.32 per gallon at the Tom Thumb at Highway 28 and Highway 97 in Molino. Prices in Davisville and Century were running about $3.35 per gallon of regular unleaded.

Diesel prices across North Escambia were approaching the four dollar mark Tuesday, with a gallon of self serve diesel at $3.89 at the Tom Thumb in Molino, once again the cheapest station we found in the area from Quintette Road to the Alabama state line. Other stations in the area we surveyed were at about $3.92 per gallon.
