California Station Selling Gas For 91 Cents Per Gallon

In the second half of 2014, the price of oil dropped by half, to depths not seen since May of 2009 when the U.S. was in the Great Recession.

As the per-gallon price of gasoline continues to drop, Los Angeles commuters on Thursday were surprised to find one local station was selling fuel for just 91 cents.

That’s not to say the price of gas has dropped that low everywhere; the price on display at the Santa Monica Boulevard Mobil was part of a promotion for NBC’s time-traveling reboot “Quantum Leap.” A sign next to the low price display read, “Leap back to 1985 prices!”

The day-long promotion wasn’t likely appreciated by other area gas stations, which are still charging an average of $5.40 per gallon, according to GasBuddy. And that’s just the average. One Mobil in Hollywood is currently charging $6 a gallon for regular unleaded, GasBuddy reports.
