Saturday afternoon on the S.C. 9 Bypass looked somewhat like a hurricane evacuation.
Vehicles came to a dead stop as motorists waited in long lines to take advantage of a rare sale – gas for under $1.
Murphy’s Express, a new gas station and convenience store next to Zaxby’s, held its grand opening Saturday, though the store opened last month.
To celebrate the grand opening, at 11 a.m., it started selling regular gas at $1.49 a gallon.
But to the surprise and benefit of many, that price fell throughout the day.
