Gasoline Prices

By  | 

Those unfamiliar numbers you're seeing on service station signs are no mistake. Gas has soared to more than three-dollars a gallon in many parts of the country, and twice that much at some Georgia stations.

One service station manager in Bismarck, North Dakota, says "I bet I'm not done" changing the price. On his station's sign, it looked like gas cost 317 dollars a-gallon because he didn't have any three's with a decimal point.

Prices have jumped since Hurricane Katrina devastated Louisiana and Mississippi, shutting down fuel pipelines and delaying deliveries.

Bill Weatherspoon is executive director of the North Carolina Petroleum Council. He says there's no gas shortage, but there is a delivery problem.

One trucker has had enough, saying he's thinking about buying a moped.
