Gas prices: it's getting hot in here

gas price map

New Jersey, you taunt us with your cheap prices!

Check out this gas price "temperature" map from Gas Buddy. As you can probably see from the screengrab above, prices are rather warm here.

According to AlbanyGasPrices.com, the average price for regular unleaded here in the Capital Region is $3.915. The national average is $3.791. It could be worse, though. Both New York City and Hartford are over the four dollar mark.

Perhaps the ONLY reason to make New Jersey your summer fun destination spot?

i paid $3.97 the other day on delaware ave and whitehall.

I'm not really a conspiracy theorist, but I think these "peak oil" people might be onto something. And I just watched an episode the Beverly Hillbillies, so I feel pretty qualified to make that assessment.

"Then one day he was shooting at some food, and up through the ground came a bubbling' crude! Oil, that is!"

Say Something!
