Letting my car run down to fumes is not something I do very often, but it happened to me this week in Shreveport.

My maintenance light came on Thursday (time for oil change) and then Friday morning my low fuel light came on. Those lights were dueling with each other. I ignored the fuel light on the way to work because it's so dang early when I go to work each morning.

So as I leave work (near Pines and I-20), I plan to pull into Murphy Oil at Walmart and filler up. But that was not meant to be. There were long lines at each pump. So I pull up to Pines Road and decide to go to the Circle K right next to Wendy's, but it is roped off and completely closed for renovations. The only other option nearby is the Pines Road Exxon.

So I pull out onto Pines and make the U-turn to go over to the Exxon. I pull up to the pump and put my credit card in the pump. I didn't even notice the price at that point.

Some Shreveport Gas Stations Are Charging Crazy High Prices for Gas

But then as I began to fuel my car I notice the price on my "regular unleaded" gas said $3.66. I did a double-take and looked back to see if I saw it wrong and it really said $2.66. Nope, it really was $3.66. At that point I'm shocked and wondered if I missed something. Did prices just spike up dramatically since my last fill up?

Nope. It's just what they are charging at that station. So I put a couple of gallons in the tank and drove off. I will fill up somewhere else.

Where Are the Highest Gas Prices in Shreveport?

Have you found some local stations charging crazy high prices in Shreveport Bossier? I wonder why this is happening. It's not like this is a neighborhood station. This is right on I-20. What motorist would pull in and pay $3.66 when the price at Walmart is under $3.00 a gallon? What am I missing here? I guess maybe they really don't want to sell gas at that station. But perhaps they are running low. Who knows.
