Gas War Continues In Liberty City

Two East Texas gas stations continue their war on gas prices.  The two stations are next to each other in Liberty City, right off I-20 at exit 582.  The Kidd Jones Exxon sits Monday at $1.28 per gallon.  Trisha's Mini Mart Fina right next door has their price at $1.26 per gallon.  The prices got as low at $1.03 and $1.01 respectively over the weekend.  That was the lowest in the country.  Even at $1.26, it's one of the country's lowest prices.  The twenty cent rise did little to deter motorists from going out of their way to fill up.

"That's why we come out here to get gas," said Bobby Ward of Tyler.  "Normally, we're from Tyler, we're on our way to Shreveport, and they said theywere having a gas price war out here, so we figured we'd come out here and check it out."

"The prices are lower," added Ken Treyvig of Gladewater, who filled up several gas cans as well.  "That's the only reason why I'd come this far. I live in Gladewater, but the prices are lower here, so I figure this is a good time to fill up for the lawn equipment, as well as the car."

The national average is $1.57, while the Texas state average is $1.36.  The Flying J in Waco has the states lowest price at $1.23.
