No, that's not a mistake. Nor is it a photo from a year ago. That truly is gas for under $3 - but to get it, you have to travel all the way to Georgetown, South Carolina:
AAA of the Carolinas reported drivers were snagging the best deals on Wednesday at the Winyah One Stop on Highmarket Street, as cars lined up for the $2.86 bargain for unleaded regular gas. Gas prices dipped even lower than $2.86 Thursday morning, dropping 8 cents in one night.
The owners of Gene's Country Store saw much of the same activity earlier this week after dropping the price of gas 20 cents on Monday. Prices opened the week at $3.15 before falling to a steady $2.95 per gallon. As of Thursday morning fuel reports, the store, also located on Highmarket Street, has continued the bargain for locals into the beginning of the weekend.
