Depending on whre one buys their gasoline, I've seen $3.29 at some local stations in Silicon Valley.

Tippy top of CA is hard to get to. Prices were often highest in the nation when I lived there. Or close to highest.

Hah! I remember the late 70s, when gas topped $1.00 in Denver. It was cheaper in Vail, or maybe Aspen. You think they got a lot of oil wells and refineries around the ski resorts?

I've noticed my influence has kept the price of gas in Bibb county, Georgia a dime lower than the surrounding counties.

So..... are prices in the states with small price ranges more regulated than the states with wider ranges?

Cant say I care about American gas prices, but that's a cool map! And the pattern is really striking. What causes the differences?

@nimh,
I'd bet state taxes make a heap of difference.

@dadpad,
I see.. so what makes for the concentration by region of prices, like low prices across the South and all the way up along the Mississippi? (The political "colour" of regional politics, maybe?)

@nimh,
Replacing cinder blocks for broken down Camaro...............$55.00

Tornado insurance for mobile home....................................$285.00

Thearpy fees, resulting from one too many redneck jokes....$564.00

Laughing at the rest of the country for being "Sucka Bitches".....Priceless

---------------

Ummm....our {Missouri} lower gas prices are actually a combination of several factors....but mainly, it's due to our centralized location.

@Noddy24,

I find this site quite helpful when I'm planning a trip. Gotta know which towns have lower prices.

On our last trip to/from Kingston, there was as much as a 10 cent/litre difference in towns only 5 minute drives apart.

@ehBeth,
Often, the differences in prices reflect the level of competition in a given local area.If you are "the only game in town", you can more or less name your price.

@Phoenix32890,
not so much in the area we were driving through - it continues to be an interesting phenomenon
