Gas Prices

Thurs, 11:30 am EDT, I80/I90, somewhere between Cleveland and Toledo -- I expected that gas prices along the route would be pretty high. Especially on the interstate. I've been paying $2.29-2.30 for the past month in the Seacoast area. I thought the road gas would be $2.50 and above.

I almost did a fill-up in Keene NH when I saw $2.27, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover prices in the mid to low 20s all across Vermont. I got a fill-up in Bennington for $2.23.

Once I crossed onto NY state though, they immediately jumped by 20 cents! And that was just the local stations along NY Route 7. On the interstate they were about the same. $2.39 to as high as $2.45. But not as high as I expected.

Then in Pennsylvania prices dropped into the teens! $2.17 all over the place. Of course I had just filled the tank for $2.39 in NY.

I'm about to buy gas here in Ohio, and I didn't get a look at the price, but overall I'm way under-budget for gas expense so far.

UPDATE: I drove around the corner in the service area to discover gas at $2.19! The cheapest I saw on the drive was $2.09!!
