Gas price check!

City, state, and highest/lowest prices you've seen in your area please.

Portland, OR
Highest: $2.09
Lowest: $1.93

This is for regular unleaded. No fancy schmancy premium crap.

Shame on you. This is DPham's pet thread.



It's around $1.89 in Ohio for regular unleaded. Costco has it for $1.62.

$1.93 my ass. This must be somewhere on the east side. You know, no man's land.

This is what it was at Space Age down by the Taco bell on 185th. I haven't driven by it in a couple days though, so it probably shot up too.

Not a great difference. It's been steadily rising, so I expect it to hit the $2 mark sometime this summer.

What is the fundamental cause of gas being so much more expensive on the west coast?

Lowest: $1.77

The gas station by my house the other day had a monsterous jump.

I was driving home on lunch and it was $1.71 I figured I'd get gas after lunch.
Well, 45 minutes later on my way back to work, the gas had gone up to $1.88

All I mainly look at are the prices for Regular. I know that premium is up around $2.00 or over.

California uses some crazy fuel blend in the summer. This requires refineries to retool and production drops.

That's just california though.

Gas prices are significantly higher in Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, and Washington.
