Two things to note about our gas price contest — no one has leaped in front yet, and though there have been high prices, there haven’t been really, really high prices. Among the leaders so far:

• The Mobil station at Skillman and Live Oak, at $3.289 as of the entry over the weekend.

• $3.289 at the Texaco at Coit and LBJ from a visitor this morning.

• $3.259 at the Chevron at Forest and Central, also this morning.

Remember, the person who sends in a picture of either the pump with the price or a sign for regular unleaded with the price gets $50 in restaurant gift certificates. The runner-up gets $20 in certificates. If there is a tie, we’ll do a drawing. The station needs to be in any of our four neighborhoods — East Dallas/Lakewood, Lake Highlands, Preston Hollow, and Far North Dallas. Regular unleaded only, so no super premium.

The contest ends Wednesday. Email your entries here, and make sure to include the name of the station and location.
