(Cleveland) - A Gas Way Station at Memphis and Fulton Parkway was selling petrol for $3.07 a gallon Thursday afternoon!

The owner wouldn't explain why he dropped the price so low, but told WTAM that he reduced the price for an hour or so, and directed traffic as startled motorists pulled in to fill up.

Across the street it was $3.14 a gallon, and two blocks away at $3.29 but there were few motorists there. Just last week we were looking at some prices at over $4 a gallon.

Later the price at Gas Way was raised to $3.29. Drivers said they enjoyed the price break while it lasted, and that $3.29 was still a good deal. Some explains that there has been an ongoing price war between the competing gas stations for some time.
