This gas sign caught me off guard while I was driving on Jacksboro Highway and noticed it out of the corner of my eye.

Uh, $4.44 for gas?

Fortunately, it’s a QuikTrip convenience store and gas station that’s under construction at the corner of River Oaks Boulevard.


Once the store opens on April 25, the sign will be adjusted to match the current retail rate of gas.

Then again, $4.44 might be the retail rate by then.

Some motorists in Hawaii and California are paying that amount now.

A QT spokesperson said gas prices are usually not posted until a station opens for business.

However, this QT store in River Oaks boasts an automatic sign with numbers included. A company official said he would see about getting the numbers set to $0.00 so as not to confuse anybody before the store opens.



  1. If we didn’t build this city in a way that requires everybody to use a car for everything, we’d be more insulated against the price of gas.
