It seems appropriate to talk about the gas prices on the day that the US announces they have found a huge reserve. Having driven across the country almost entirely on Route 80, I feel I can give a pretty good commentary on the prices.
For the most part it seemed the average was about $2.85 for the cheapest unleaded option. In Ohio, it got as cheap as $2.49. In parts of Nevada and California, I’ve seen $3.39 right next to $2.99 stations. That’s something that I had never seen in Boston. The usual difference is 10 cents or less.
