Three hours of cheap gasoline has caused one convenience store in Eastern Carolina to become a very popular stop Friday afternoon.
The Circle K on Highway 17 south of Jacksonville, across from the Air Station, has regular gas for $3.54 a gallon. That's about 20 cents cheaper than competing locations.
The convenience store is only offering the discount until 7:00 p.m. as part of its remodel welcome to customers. When our reporter was there just after 5:00 p.m. every pump was full.
