Heck, we are mostly paying $3.59 to $3.69 for gasoline locally.  Diesel is at $3.99 or more still.  On the other side of the metro gasoline is going for $3.39 or less, but I wouldn't save any money making a 40 mile round trip.  For some reason both diesel and gas tend to be higher in my part of town and the area is not that affluent.  The area that has gas for $3.39 is more affluent than where I live.

Maybe they buy more than on your side of town so transportation costs are less and competition is greater.

I do notice the highest gas prices are in the inner city areas.  I suppose they figure most of the drivers don't travel all that much and don't have an opportunity to buy gas at a cheaper station.  I really have no idea why gas prices are generally 10 to 20 cents higher in my area.  Even Sam's Club and Costco are higher than the ones on the other side of the metro.

The cost of gasoline in Germany is actually cheaper than in the USA before the taxes are added on.

A friend who owned a gas station in the 'less desireable part of town' told me that his costs were higher there than in the 'better part of town'. Lots of things added up - drive offs, vandalism, theft, bogus complaints, etc.

Doesn't take long for the actions of a few to ruin it for everyone else.

More times than not I have been one of those buy high sell low guys. Well it happen again. When we were coming home from Nashville a few weeks ago I decided to stop in Kansas to top off the tanks. I now have a 3/4 full tank of a little under 4.00 fuel. I guess I will have to go somewhere to burn up that high dollar fuel so I can fill up with some cheaper fuel. Makes sense to me.

Often the reason gas is more expensive in the inner city is additional city taxes on gas, to fund city transit for example.

A few years back i would try to get from Az. to Wa. without having to buy much fuel in the states inbetween because fuel was always cheaper in Wa.  The last couple of years it has flipped around to where i try not to buy fuel in Wa. if i can. Huh
