Gas Prices in our Town

July 9th, 2012 at 08:08 am

Gas prices in our town went up twice last week...to $3.55 by Saturday. We felt it was weird since the price of oil had gone down by the end of the week.

Saturday night we drove to a smaller town north of us -- less than 30 minutes away -- to eat out with another couple. Amazing, the gas prices were lower -- $3.29.

One would think the gas station owners are in a conspiracy in our city...especially since the two larger cities, one east and one west, either around 45 minutes away, are both cheaper. I realize we aren't in Chicago or on the coasts, but trying to figure out the rationale for higher prices is beyond me.

What are gas prices in your neck of the woods?

    Maybe your city has higher gas taxes than those cities? Our county has higher gas taxes than other WA state counties because we are a border state and they like to gouge both us and the Canadians coming down from B.C. I saw $3.37 on Friday when I filled up. I hope it keeps going down. I'd like to see it under $3 again.
