Where's the Cheapest Gas in Huntsville?

Best Places to Buy Gas

By

With the price of gas soaring, it's more important than ever to find the best places to buy gas in the Huntsville area. Prices per gallon can vary up to 17+ cents depending on where you buy and from whom.
  • If you live on the south end of town, the best place to go is down the Parkway on Highway 231 and over the Tennessee Bridge to what has been known for years as "gasoline alley." There are a bunch of gas stations from which to choose. I usually continue down the road (on my way to my sister's) to the intersection of Highways 231 & 36 to the Wavaho Station...it is even cheaper than the other stations, usually by a couple cents.
  • If you live on the north end of town, then take the Parkway to Meridianville. There are two gas stations on the left, side by side: Jet Pep and Raceway. The Raceway station doesn't take credit cards, but Jet Pep does. The price is usually the same for both stations and I'd rather use a credit card, so I usually get my gas there.
  • If you have a Costco membership, their gas is usually the cheapest in town with their member discount. I'm not buying a membership, though, just to get their gas!
  • Any Williams Service Station usually has the lowest price on gas in Huntsville. These stations are privately owned and the price will vary from station to station. I've found that the one on Pratt Avenue/University seems to have the lowest price.
  • The Kroger Grocery Store on Oakwood/Parkway and the one on Winchester Road have gas pumps and good prices when you use your Kroger card to get an additional discount.
  • If all else fails, I always go to Super Wal-Mart to get gas. When traveling, we try to get gas at Wal-Mart Stores since we don't know the area and figure they have one of the lowest prices for that area.
  • AAA Alabama shows current gas prices from 85,000 stations nationwide.
  • This website is helpful for current Alabama gas prices where hourly information is provided by local drivers like you and me.
  • Here's another site to track current gas prices Gas Price Watch.
