Drivers in Memphis, Tennessee, were pleasantly surprised – but confused – Wednesday after the price for regular unleaded gasoline dropped by more than $1 in just hours at two area gas stations.
The stations at the corner of Shelby Drive and Kirby Parkway – an Exxon and a Pump N’ Munch – were showing unleaded gas prices around $1, which is less than half of what average gas prices have been in the Mid-South, WHBQ reported late Wednesday.
Drivers who witnessed the massive drop in prices at these stations told WHBQ that people were lining up after seeing the incredibly low prices.
It is unclear why the decrease in price happened to both of these gas stations, or if those prices are legitimate.
WHBQ has reached out to officials for more information.
