Gasoline selling for less than $3 a gallon in Burbank

Gasoline prices just keep on dropping. The Arco station at Hollywood Way and Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank  is selling self-serve regular for $2.99 a gallon! Three weeks ago the same station, known to have some of the cheapest prices in B-town,  had regular priced at $3.29 a gallon.
