wars in Salem! Two competing gas stations along 4-th Street lowered their prices so much people waited in line for hours to get some! WDBJ7's Nadia Singh is live near the pumps with the fuel fued! Chris, People started getting in line at the gb and Shell stations this afternoon. Both offered gas at 1-99 but gb was cash only with a 15- dollar limit. Some drivers waited bumper-to-bumper here along 4-th street until police waved them off. Glenn McKenzie/Driver " Reporter:Why are you waiting? Driver: Too many cars around if gas is 1-99 you better get it while you still can." Carol Webb/Driver "1.99! You can' beat that and i need gas for the whole week so i said, yeah, this will help." Jordan Reeves/Driver "Thi is pretty crazy. People are going crazy for some cheap gas." Bob Wilkerson "Dude, th economy right now, that's how you gotta roll. 2 dollars, i mean, that's 50 percent off gas." The intersection of 4-th and Union Streets in Salem is normally busy on a Friday afternoon, but not this busy. Esther Smith/Driver "i came the bac way here to go to Main Street sat there for 20-30 minutes just to get to this point, thought there was a wreck." But, this was no wreck. This was a good, old fashioned price war between the gb and Shell gas stations. Arizona Johnson "They came out they dropped their's down to 2-99 and when they dropped there's down to 2-99, i said, uh-oh, gas war, it's on now!" Andy Gill/GB Owner "For the last 3 days they've been 15 cents higher and no one told them to be 15 cents higher we just left the price of our gas very fair." At the time this story was shot, both gas stations were offering 1-99 unleaded. The gb is privately owned. The Shell, run by corporate proprietors, is allowing GB's owners to set the price. Andy Gill/GB Owner "We're not going t let a big corporate, like Lehigh gas, which is traded on the New York Stock Exchange, we're not going to let them push the little guys around. Gill's neighbor across the street followed suit but offered unlimited gas and the use of credit cards; a jab at GB's community goodwill gesture Heather Keating/Shell Manager "The drop theirs, we get a call on the phone, hey drop this to whatever, we drop it, we come out here, we change it, we change it in there." For the drivers though, it was all about a little break on the wallet. Paul Yen/Driver "Since i got in lin to the time i got to the pump, it's an hour and a half. It's worth it. Any penny, any money you can save today is going to be a good thing." Right now, gas is at ...Nadia adlibs about prices. It's not clear how long either will offer prices. It's not clear how long either will offer the discounted gas. Live in Salem, Nadia Singh, wdbj7.
