Gas prices dip below $2 a gallon in central Ohio
Columbus has joined the $2-gasoline party.
Early this evening, about 10 stations were selling regular unleaded for $1.99, the first time this has happened, other than a few outliers, since 2009. One was even selling gas for $1.98 a gallon.
At one of those stations, M&S Carryout on the West Side, there was a line of cars. Co-owner Chad Rasul said he hired a security guard to help direct traffic.
He said he was considering increasing the price to help reduce the glut of traffic, but he doesn’t expect any large increase.
“Watching the markets, I don’t see a reason why it would go up anytime soon,” he said.
The drop to less than $2 is part of a dramatic plunge in prices since Thursday, said Gregg Laskoski, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com.
