Sonora, CA — Harpreet Dhaliwal says it may be the cheapest gas in all of California.
Dhaliwal dropped his association with Unocal Thursday and is now pumping ARCO gasoline at the Sonora Express-Mart on Hwy 49 north of the city center. Dhaliwal says ARCO feels gas prices are simply too high and as a result the company is cutting back on prices that have skyrocketed to over $3.00 a gallon.
Dhaliwal´s prices are set at 2.75, 2.87 and 2.97. So how does that compare with Gold County gas on S. Washington St? Those prices as of Monday are 2.91, 3.04 and 3.14 a gallon.
Dhaliwal said even though his prices on an average are 16 and two-thirds cents a gallon less than Gold County, he is still doing “o.k.” He added he is not allowed to discuss his margins due to his agreement with ARCO.
