The city proper has a .5% city tax, but that would only add about 2 cents to a gallon of gas.  Taxes alone don't explain why gas is 20 to 30 cents higher in the inner city areas.  Transit tax is collected across the entire metro area.  There is one station in the city that consistently charges 20 cents a gallon more, but they are the only gas station workers heading out of downtown back to the suburbs pass by before getting on the freeway.

It is interesting that the cost of diesel in LA is about the same as diesel here, but our gas prices are way lower.

Well I still have a half tank of fuel from Mexico (approx 3 dollars a gallon paid in pesos) but I thought I would fill it up this weekend while we are out for a drive and it looks to be about 3.65 give or take a penny or two.

We are now paying 10.2 pesos per liter here. (3.78 liters per U. S. gallon) Since the Mexican peso devalued to 14.43 per dollar this week, that means we are now paying the equivalent of $2.65 U. S. per U. S. gallon.

@ 3.49 a gal that will 20% bio diesel you can buy it here in Phoenix for around 3.50 for certain applications a gal,the straight ULSD cost around $3.85 a gal the 5% bio here is $3.75 and some stations have 2 pumps 1 will be for LSD for older vehicles and it is a little cheaper than ULSD fuel my understanding that is going a way only the bio mix fuel and ULSD will be sold and the pumps will be green for bio mix fuel

SC allows stations to sell the 20% bio diesel AZ doesn't yet only the 5% at retail stations the only place I have found 20% bio fuel here in Phoenix is at CardLock  it was tempting to fill the MH up but I paid $3.85  


Matt, Mexico imports all their ULSD from the USA figure that one out lol not many of the government owned stations sell the ULSD fuel in Mexico we do have a choice here to buy from any station they don't it is bought from Mexican Government

Dont any of you come my way! Not that you would want to anyway with temperatures being well above 100 degrees now. But in order to escape this HOT, diesel around here is more then gasoline and is about $4.19 for the cheep stations..... So. California Mojave Desert

It's starting to look a little better here in Homer Alaska too. It's been over 5.00 per gal for a year now, It is now down to 4.60

It still kills me, but that .50 saves me 380.00 on one fill in the bus.

     Yeah, but it's a dry heat there.  I'm in Charlotte NC today - up to 104, and definitely NOT a dry heat!  Fuel $3.35 just across the border in SC.

I saw a station yesterday with gas at $3.49 and diesel at $3.59.  Very unusual as diesel is usually at least 25 cents per gallon more.  I have seen diesel as high as 80 cents a gallon more in the past year.
