PITTSBURGH — A local gas station cuts regular gasoline prices on July 4 to $2.38/gallon, the national average in 2021.
According to a press release from Americans for Prosperity in Pennsylvania (AFP-PA), the grassroots group is taking over the Sunoco gas station in Monroeville to spare drivers some pain at the pump.

The participating station is located at 1855 Haymaker Road in Monroeville and the event will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This is the group’s second price cut in the area.
On June 22, rows of cars lined up for a two-hour event at the BP gas station in Lower Burrell for their chance at cheaper gas.

150 cars could fill up for $2.38/gallon.
Assuming an average 10-gallon tank in those cars, we estimate that the price difference at the first event cost the gas station about $4,000. 11 News was told that Americans for Prosperity was shouldering the costs.
