Is The Cheapest Gas In Maine Really At This Small Market?
When it comes to gas prices here in the United States, we have been riding a rollercoaster for the last few years. At the beginning of the pandemic, when no one was driving, the price of gas dropped to way below $2 a gallon. Then, as things got back to normal, and other factors creeped in, the price started to skyrocket.
Pries seemed to have peaked at more than five dollars per gallon in early June. Now, they have started to drop. The dropping of the price is a slow process, but it is happening.
According to WMTW, the gas prices at a gas station in the small town of Buxton have caused quite a stir. The prices at Panda Market, which had a price of $4.19 for a gallon of regular gas on Thursday, caused lines of cars.
The Panda Market, is a gas station and small market known for selling Chinese goods.
In the TV station article, owner May Hang explains that she has no problem with the fact that the business is only making 15 cents off the sale of each gallon of gas. She is banking on the fact that most of the people who stop by for gas will also make other purchases.
Not surprisingly, some of the locals were not happy that their secret was out. Several people had posted about the cheap price on Facebook. Even more people spotted the price on the signs. In fact, one of the people that the reporter spoke to said he almost drove off the road when he saw the price on the gas station's sign.
