Gas Gap Widens to 35 Cents for High Country Drivers PDF Print

Good news: Gas prices are down for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Bad news: Gas prices in the High Country are still schizophrenic. Tim from Blowing Rock was one of the fortunate whose path took him through Marion, where he snapped the picture of gas at $3.21.9—in case you needed proof. Meredith said a new station in Marion was at $3.19.9. That while the Kangaroo on Blowing Rock Road in Boone actually raised its price a penny from $3.63.9 to $3.64.9.  On 321 by the Shoppes on the Parkway, Noah said gas was $3.60.  Jim at J&M Produce called and said in Johnson City TN gas was $3.39, same in Roan Mtn. In Newland gas was $3.40.There was a gas price on 321/421 just north of Boone late Thursday that was $3.54.9—and that prices was still 35 cents per gallon higher than the Marion price, which had been steady all week at $3.21—now even lower.  West Jefferson drivers are paying $3.44.9, thanks to Ross for that. So while we’re seeing some relief, we’re still much higher than prices off the mountain—and still with no explanation from gas retailers or governmental sources.  So you keep making the reports and taking the pictures, and we’ll keep asking ‘why?’
