Bismarck Has Gas At $1.68 A Gallon!
Fill your gas tank today? Or wait to see how low it's gonna go!
I saw this headline- "Gasoline prices hit 16 year low" and I thought I might learn a little something by reading it. Well, I learned that Bismarck/Mandan is KILLING IT on low gas prices. According to that story, gas prices have been declining since the first of October when the statewide average was $2.07 a gallon. It also mentions the statewide average will drop below two bucks sometime this week.
In Bismarck/Mandan that time is now! I look across the street from our studios on The Strip and I see it's $1.95 at the Memorial Cenex. According to Gasbuddy.com, it's actually just $1.89 at little farther east at the Cenex in Sterling. But from what I can see, $1.95 is pretty standard across BisMan.
So what about $1.68 a gallon I advertised in the headline? Well, according to Gas Buddy, at the time of this writing, that's the price per gallon at Bismarck's Sam's Club with Costco just a penny behind. But you have to be a member to get the deal. So let's stick with public pumps.
I really don't care about the price of gas. I drive a fairly economic vehicle and live only about a mile from work. So, I'm not burning through a bunch of fuel. But, I've known plenty of people that will travel ten miles to save a nickel a gallon. I think it makes them feel like they're not getting pumped at the pump.
So how low will gas prices go? Pretty low I bet when nobody goes home for Thanksgiving.
