Jeremy Coates spent $100 filling up his truck Friday afternoon, and that was considered a good deal.
With rumors of gas topping $5 per gallon in Lexington and Louisville on Friday morning, a friend told Coates he should fill up soon or literally pay the price.
And Coates certainly was not alone.
Kathy Case, who was working the cash register at the BP on U.S. 127, said the gas station had seen a definite increase in business during the lunch hour Friday.
"The pumps have been full for an hour and a half," Case said.
