Gas 60-cent price cut draws lines reminiscent of 1970s gas shortage

The Shell station on Harrison at 6th Streets caused quite a traffic mess Thursday morning when it lowered the price of gas by about 60 cents per gallon causing hundreds to line up for the cheaper fuel. Tempers flared as lines were cut and motorists funneled into the station from 3 different directions. There were three television stations there doing live remotes and adding to the circus like atmosphere. The owner of the station, Bob Oyster, had for months complained that Shell was charging their independents more than anyone else and therefore making it impossible for him to survive. He is said to be turning over the keys to the station on Friday. 6000 gallons of gas were to be sold today and the many that braved the lines waited as much as three hours to get the cheaper gas. “It reminded me of the gas lines back in the 70’s,” said Thomas Laidley of Antioch.
