In California, drivers are paying more than $3 a gallon for gas. But here in the Tri-State, it’s closer to $2 a gallon. What is so strange is how the prices can jump in a matter of hours.
On Green St. in Henderson, at least one gas station had fuel for $1.86. However, the price was short-lived. Not long after Eyewitness News arrived, gas went back up to $2.14.
“Honestly, I think if it can be $1.86, that they all ought to be $1.86,” said Jan Mobley. “I don’t understand why we have so much fluctuation. In Evansville it’s $2.30 something, so I just think it’s crazy.”
While we never know exactly why the prices can fluctuate so often, it is definitely a hot topic among drivers who tell Eyewitness News they are frustrated with the changes.
According to Gasbuddy.com, prices in Evansville are closer to $2.30 a gallon.
