Just yesterday, I was checking prices because I watch the price of gasoline on commodity charts and I was actually wondering why we are paying so
LITTLE here in Colorado. Lately I've seen our gas drop to as low as $2.89 a gallon which seemed awfully cheap to me when the wholesale cost (today)
is at $2.77 a gallon, before taxes.
Each state taxes gasoline at different rates so that can have a significant impact on your local price:
You can actually check prices by state (individual metropolitan areas as well):
I recently read an article that talked about how demand for fuel was actually down, significantly, and retailers were cutting their margins just to
sell product. Perhaps those of you paying more for fuel are the lucky ones... maybe it's because your general economy is stronger than where the gas
is the cheapest.
