Default Gas prices...what are you paying?

Just got back from a long weekend in Vegas and was suprised at the difference in gas prices. In Vegas we paid $2.25 for the crappy stuff and here in Texas it's $1.96.

So, what do you pay?

Here in Phoenix it's about $2.35 at the Chevron station on the corner. I was just in Los Angeles over the weekend, and it was $2.53 a gallon there.

Wow, that is quite a difference, but I notice that is a peculiarity of US gas stations on the same street, never mind different states. You can have two gas stations across the street from each other, both with different gas prices. The thing that weirdly annoys me, even though I'm completely unaffected , is that people will still buy gas from the more expensive gas station even though they can get it cheaper across the road......

Slightly side tracked there, we pay $2.14 from a discount store/gas station that we pay a membership too. It's either that or pay the extra 5-10 cent a gallon at neighboring gas stations (Utica, central NY state).

$2.23 in south Scottsdale and $2.30 in north Scottsdale. You go to the Cheveron rip off gas stations and they hike it up about another 10 cents.

$2.13 in Salem, $2.05 - $2.11 nearer Boston. Would have thought it'd be the other way round!

Default Re: Gas prices...what are you paying?

I've noticed something odd about gas prices, before it started going up like crazy, erm 6 - 9 months ago maybe, the price of regular here in Chandler, AZ was always about 25 cents cheaper than in Vegas whenever we visited Vegas, yet somehow Vegas and Chandler's prices are much more similar now...either Vegas prices have actually got relatively cheaper (yeah right) or I'm paying more than I should be compared to other places.

Also I felt before it went crazy that the gas price here was about the same as the national average, again for some reason the prices here are now above the national average.

Am I being a fool or being ripped off? Have your prices increased / decreased at the same rate as the national average?

Sounds about right, 2.01-2.03 for a gallon of regular.
