It’s hard to believe, but many gas stations around Greenville are now charging $1.99 for a gallon of gas, and it may be because Sheetz, a new gas station, has just opened.
Sheetz opened Wednesday night with a price of $2.19 a gallon. That prompted all other stations around to lower their costs immediately.
Friday, Sheetz was at $1.99 a gallon, as are its competitors.
An economics professor at ECU says these prices are lowering right now to due lower crude oil prices and a relatively calm hurricane season.
