How much do you plan on paying for gasoline? From the looks of things, it is more today than yesterday and could even be more tomorrow.
According to officials with gas stations around Brewton, gas that is bought for a price from the distributor may go up the very next day, but the stations continue to sell the gas in the ground for less, until they have to purchase more.
Doreen Hadley, who owns the BP station, C&D, on St. Nicholas Avenue, agreed.
Gas stations that sell large quantities of gas every day usually see the most changes. The Diamond Station on Douglas Avenue gets a delivery almost every day. That means their cost is changing on a day-by-day basis.
Roger Chapman, marketing manager for Goodway Refining LLC, said he believes there may be some good news in the near future with the price of gas.
Chapman said many consumers may not realize that gas burned in the summer is different from that burned in the winter.
