We've observed consistently higher fuel prices in Frisco than in surrounding areas, sometimes as much as 10 cents. This is compared to north Plano and Carrollton. Is there any rhyme or reason to this? Also, are there any applications to build more gas stations, esp. east of Preston? Seems like they are few and far between right now, esp. considering Frisco's growing size.

Thanks for your time

Rich,

At this time there are a number of preliminary or final site plans that have convenience stores with fuel pumps (gas stations). Most are located along or near Preston Road or west of the Dallas Parkway. There are a number of locations where convenience stores can go in throughout the city.

The City of Frisco can not regulate fuel prices and we do not track prices in Frisco or the surrounding cities. Typically, it is what the market will accept.

Is there anyreason why the Citgo/7-11 station (Hillcrest/Main) is consistently out of gas. During various times of the day several of their pumps display an "out of service" cover on the pumps or even a "please use another pump" message on the display.

Is there any sort of regulation as to how many pumps are operable at various times in the day (weekend/afternoon/evening)? or that all available pumps be operating during peak hours.

On various occasions during the afternoon/weekend hours I have noticed a majority of the pumps out of service. Though this is an inconvenience, I can't imagine this station is actually making enough money to stay in business.

Jeff,

The City of Frisco does not regulate the number of working pumps at convenience stores or gas stations. Whether pumps are working or not is up to the store's management and not the City.
