I filled up at a Love's on I-35 a few days ago at $2.27.  Feeling ripped off now....

I'm guessing that's part of some kind of price war going on, gauging from the amount of traffic in the gas pump area.

I might expect the QT at Utica and 11th to fall in line soon.   Any bets on that?

Paid $2.19 in the 7000 block of North Western in OKC last night.  Apparently the $1.99 was down south.  I wasn’t going to drive 20 miles out of my way to save a couple of bucks.

Wholesale gas in Tulsa is currently around $1.95.  Retailers usually at ~10 cents plus taxes and CC fees. WE are seeing as lightly wider range than that right now in Tulsa... probably QT padding profits after taking tight margins as prices rose.

Duo at SW 59th and Blackwelder in OKC shows display of $1.89 a gallon.  Made the morning news....but it's fake - they aren't open and aren't selling any gas.

So I filled up at 7/11 for $1.99 about half hour ago...

Is there still an abandoned gas sign on 31st between Yale and Harvard with $1.68 on it?

They tore the station down many moons ago, but the sign was sill up until recently.  The lot has been purchased and I believed they tore down the sign finally.  Think a Fiesta Mart is "Coming soon."

This one wasn't abandoned, just not open for business at 8:00 am.  I think they posted that as a "spoiler" for the competition all around them.  There were 4 other stores within half a mile that were selling for $1.99.
