I Had No Idea

North Carolina's Expensive Gas
Eastern NC   -  10/8/2008

North Carolina has the most expensive gasoline in the continental United States.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Wednesday that drivers in our state were paying an average of $3.79 a gallon for regular gasoline yesterday. That is 31 cents above the national average, and higher than in any other state except for Alaska and Hawaii.
Industry and government officials say the hurricanes that disrupted production in the Gulf of Mexico are responsible for the higher prices. Extra deliveries at Wilmington's port improved supplies in the eastern part of the state, and some stations had prices below $3.40 earlier this week.

I know that I said a while back that I was tired of obsessing over gas prices but this shocked me. I paid $3.78 yesterday and I thought that was cheap comparatively, lol. What do I know?


  1. I do recommend spending a week or two in Hawaii with a rental car. :-) It really makes things look better when you return home and go to the gas station for the first time. The glee at paying so much less doesn't last long though.

  2. I'd take a week in Hawaii for whatever reason I could get it, lol. I'm sure that they pay quite a bit more than we do though. Everything in Hawaii is more expensive.

  3. We're finally getting a break here. Gas is down to $2.89 at most places. I was in shock when it went below $3.00. I'd take a week in Hawaii anytime, lol.

  4. Nice. Gas below three bucks. I can't imagine.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
