Hancock gas war is over
HANCOCK - Hancock's gasoline price war is over.
For about two months, gas stations here sold gas for as low as 93.9 cents per gallon. But now that a discount filling station has gone out of business, prices have inched higher.
As a result, prices have climbed in Hancock at the same time they have declined elsewhere in the Tri-State region. Still, gas station owners said the price - at about 99 cents per gallon for regular unleaded - remains low.
"Now the prices in town are more in line with the rest of the area," said Fleming Oil Co. owner Lee Fleming, who owns the Citgo station on West Main Street.
