So on our cross-country road trip from California to New York with my sister, I decided to record the gas prices around the country. I was just curious to see how it varied by state from April 1st through April 10th, 2012. Not surprisingly, California and New York had some of the most expensive gas prices! Unfortunately, I lost my receipt for California so I didn't include it in the chart, but it was definitely well over $4.00 per gallon.
I definitely noticed a trend that the coastal regions were more expensive than the southwest and southeast. I lost the receipt from when we were in Texas, but surprisingly the day that we stopped in Amarillo, TX the gas prices were actually cheaper in New Mexico than they were in Texas.
More to follow on the road trip, but I wanted to share this before I lose all of the receipts.
