MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) – If you want the lowest gas prices in the area, your best bet is to be in Middletown or to be a member of a club store.
If you want gasoline for under 3 dollars a gallon, you’ll need a time machine.
Prices took off like a jump jet Monday or Tuesday, according to the chart on the FOX19 Gas Price Tracker page. Last week a number of stations had prices of $3.03 or lower; after the price hike was over, the average price for regular was around $3.29 a gallon, with few stations varying much from that average.
The lowest prices were in scattered spots around Southwest Ohio. Motorists who report prices observed the Costco and Sam’s Club locations along Fields Ertel Road in Mason and Loveland charging 3.09 (omitting the fractional .9 cents) for regular.
