Old pumps giving Oklahoma drivers a break on gas prices

RAVIA, Okla. -- Gas prices seem to be soaring by the minute, as several stations in Texoma are selling regular unleaded for as much as $3.19 a gallon.

But folks in Ravia are getting a "steal" thanks to the some older technology.

Motorists passing through Ravia got what some are calling 'a steal of a deal’ at the pumps thanks to a missing part.

The E-Z Mart off Highways 1 and 22 is supposed to sell regular unleaded fuel for $3.09 a gallon, but the dial readings on the gas pumps read $2.99, ten cents lower than the advertised price.

The store's district manager says the prices on the pumps are due to a missing cog gear that changes the numbers.

He says while it's not great news for the gas station, it’s wonderful news for motorists looking for a break from high gas prices.

"When you use as much fuel as we do 10 cents a gallon is a lot...a lot,” said motorist Don Harmon.

Eldon Stevenson added, "I think it’s a dime saved you gas up once or twice everyday in a weeks time you save some money."

These prices won't last long. The district manager says a repair man should install the missing part by the end of the day.
