Gilmer Gas Showdown

   The war is on in one East Texas town to see which gas station has the cheapest gas. Three stations in Gilmer have dropped their unleaded gas to a low $1.19 a gallon. Customers say the friendly "gas war" is between the Stop A Minute Fina, Food Fast Fina, and Brookshires on Highway 271. That's quite a comparison to the price of $1.34 to $1.40 a gallon at many other East Texas stations. Regular Gilmer customers say people have been making the trip from all over East Texas since it all started last Friday. Brookshire's tells us their goal is not to be undersold at the pump, that's why they follow when the Fina stations drop their prices.
