City of Somerset preparing to sell gas to public

Posted: Updated:

SOMERSET, KY (WAVE) – Officials in Somerset say they expect the city to start selling gasoline to the public in the next couple of weeks.

Economic Development Business Coordinator George Wilson said the city has ordered the equipment it needs. It should arrive in the next couple of weeks and will take a few days to set up.

City officials decided to start offering gas to the public after getting complaints about high fuel prices in the area.

Wilson said prices will be based on an average of how much cities within a 50-mile radius are charging.
