Gasoline prices flirt with $1.00 at a few stations

        Gasoline prices fell under the $1-a-gallon level Wednesday in at least one Tristate location — even if there was a slight catch.

        The Sam's Club at 9570 Fields-Ertel Road, Symmes Township, offered unleaded gasoline for 98 cents a gallon to its members. Non-members paid $1.03 a gallon — which tied Speedway, also in Symmes Township, and UDF in Maineville for having the lowest local price on Gaspricewatch.com.

        The average price in the Cincinnati market Wednesday was $1.20 a gallon, according to AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report. That's down 7 cents from a week ago. Prices in Northern Kentucky were at $1.33 a gallon — finally putting prices there under the national average, which was $1.37 Wednesday.

        “I come by (the Fields-Ertel area) on a regular basis,” Tim Jacobson, who lives in Montgomery, said as he filled up his car. “They just opened this about a month ago. My kids go to school near here, so I get my gas when I get my kids.”

        Bryon Lambert used his Sam's Club card to purchase premium gasoline for $1.12 a gallon, but he said the price was a bargain even for non-members.

        “It's still cheaper than anywhere else,” said the Loveland resident, who normally shops for gas in the Fields-Ertel/Montgomery Road area. “There is so much around here, you can get better prices.”
