Gas war backes up traffic

Traffic was backed up onto Otranto Road in front of Rivers Avenue in North Charleston as people took advantage of the cheep gas. A price war started between two gas stations, Circle K and Murphy Express when the Circle K lowered its price to $2.19 a gallon.

The high volume of customers at both stores created a gridlock as vehicles lined up for gas.
