Gas prices in Picayune vary depending on the station, but appear to be going down slightly.

The lowest price per gallon in Picayune can be found at Murphy’s near Walmart, and Pure Country on Miss. 43 S. 

Both stations are selling a gallon for $3.10.

Roadrunner on the corner of Palestine Road and Beech Street and the Shell at exit 1 in Nicholson are asking the most for a gallon of gas, $3.25 and $3.27 respectively.

If a gallon of gas without ethanol added is desired, then there are several stations that offer it, but at a premium. Pit Stop on U.S 11 is selling a gallon of pure gasoline for $3.39. Pure Country and Logans on Beech Street are asking $3.41 for a gallon of pure gasoline.

Diesel prices have remained mostly steady this summer. 

Prices for a gallon of diesel range from $3.69 at the Texaco on U.S. 11 and the Exxon on Memorial Boulevard, to $3.59 at Pure Country and RaceTrac on Miss. 43 S.

In April of this year prices ranged from $3.36 for a gallon of ethanol added fuel, to $3.56 to $3.63 per gallon for non-ethanol gasoline. 

During that same month diesel was priced at $3.60 to $3.75 a gallon.
