Gas war means lower prices for customers

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- There were long lines at a gas station in South Bend Thursday afternoon.


“You got to take this deal when you can get it,” said regular customer John Beck.


The Admiral gas station on 933 charged just $3.03 a gallon.


 A low price customers said was well worth the wait.


“Well I’ve been out here a half hour trying to get gas,” said Tamaya Lester.


“I’ve been waiting about 15 to 20 minutes,” Beck said.


Store managers said cheap gas means big business.


It is why they drive around every two hours to make sure they have the most competitive price on the block.


It is also why they posted a sign on the front door letting customers know the cheap gas was for a limited time only.


When the clock struck 6- it was back to $3.35 a gallon.


That got these customers celebrating something they usually despise, getting gas. “I’m excited. I’m very excited,” said Carris Eakins.


Store managers said by 6:40 Thursday evening, they had 670 customers.
