Gas stations in Stephenville compete for the cheapest prices daily - and it looks like prices are dropping.

All three Allsup's locations are selling unleaded gas for $1.99 per gallon and diesel fuel for $2.35 per gallon.
Crystal Warren, a clerk at Murphy USA, explained their competitive pricing as “friendly competition.”

Warren said Murphy USA can’t guarantee the cheapest gas, “but we do try.”
