Price ?

Tom, I am with you; why ? The goverenment. I recall the first day I pulled my 68 Mustang into a convenience store and the gas was a dollar. I was flabbergasted !


can it be the government? The state tax is the same regardless of where you are in the State.

So how can that be the answer?

What I am always

challenged to understand is how gas prices are consistently 10 to 12 cents lower in Raleigh than at the coast.

Even on the Outer Banks, gasoline is normally 5 to 6 cents lower than in the Wilmington area. Given the costs to transport the fuel to the Outer Banks, how can that be?
