Less-extreme gas prices few and far between after another major increase | Business
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - After the second major rise in gas prices in 5 days, prices at the vast majority of Tri-State gas stations were at $3.39 (ignoring the last digit) as of Friday afternoon. Those prices are just for regular, with premium now typically at $3.59 a gallon.
Barring another hike, individual gas stations may start slowly droppng their prices to gain business from neighboring stations, although that didn't have much time to happen earlier this week, when most stations raised prices on Monday or Tuesday to 3.29, then raised them again Friday morning to 3.39. It's also possible that some of the stations with lower prices only have them because they haven't gotten around to joining the price hike yet
Here are prices that were less than four hours old as of 5 p.m. Friday, taken from cincygasprices.com, which also provides prices for the FOX19.com Gas Price Tracker. Speedway prices are from Speedway.com. Not every station is listed and all prices may change.
