PA now has some of the highest taxes around... but its only $3.15 a gallon..
in time everyone will buy more electrics and hybrids and the price will come down
Gas prices in CA vary with location and stations, you may have read 4.02, but it's 4.19 here having gone down a bit and higher than that in other locations. Took a picture at Shell (highest) and Arco (lowest) totally different prices.@MFJohnston wrote:
According to AAA, gas prices average $2.84/gal right now with California being the most expensive state at $4.02. Hawaii is second at $3.59 and Washington third at $3.46. Oregon, Nevada, Alaska and Arizona all also top $3.00/gal. Of course, this will further vary by geographical region within a state.
I was curious and looked up gas taxes by state. Pennsylvania is indeed the highest at $0.576 per gallon, followed by Washington ($0.494), California ($0477), Connecticut ($0.438), and New Jersey ($0.414). At the low end are Alaska ($0.1565), Hawaii ($0.16, also subject to county tax of 8.8-18.0 cents and additional sales tax ), and Virginia ($0.162, additional 2.1% wholesale tax applies in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads area)
