Check out your state's gas taxes. Suprisingly enough NJ is ranked 48th least taxed state for gas.
Lol, Connecticut is 4th.

In WA, the gas tax is $.37, and about to go up a dime.

NY has the highest at $.50.

$3.79 in California, eastbay. I see that Ca. is #2 in taxes, NY #1.
It would be interesting to see the prices with the taxes removed to get a better picture on how this number compares, since taxes vary tremendously, state to state.

I see that prices are trending down in Kansas, 3.09 to 2.89, thanks to two reports by Sheila.
It's how about $1.00/gallon in Kansas than California. When the taxes of the two states are subtracted out, gas is about 75 cents cheaper a gallon in Kansas. This is crazy considering the distance from refineries.

Winter blend gas is more expensive to produce so we pay more for it and that's why we usually don't see that big of a difference from the summer to the winter. Demand is high in the summer because of all the road trips people take so that's why it goes sky high in the summer.

Right now the reason our prices are dropping is because of the price of a barrel of crude dropping. It won't be long before it goes up again....... OPEC won't allow it.......
