Price wars break out in Fresno, which posts the average fuel cost in the nation
Carolyn Said, Chronicle Staff Report Tuesday, August 28, 2001
For one brief, shining moment, California has the distinction of being home to the city with the cheapest gasoline in the United States.
Gas in Fresno, where some stations are charging a refreshingly retro 99 cents per gallon, is rock-bottom for the nation, according to the Lundberg Survey of 8,000 stations nationwide.
In fact, up in raisin country, where forecasters expected it to hit 108 degrees yesterday, the thermometer is showing bigger numbers than the gas stations.
Here's a way for big oil to silence those California fuel critics!! Just 'buy' their loyalty and silence with cheap gas!
