      I got you beat by $0.20...

      Check out the NC/SC difference in the map posted above. I live in SC, 4 miles over the NC border...no shortage of NC drivers that cross the border for much cheaper gas.

      I'm really just here for the pancakes.

      Screw you guys. We take the oil out of the land and we pay more than you guys who buy from us. If oil stays high, our economy is good.

      Same, but I would say i am about 4 miles on the NC side. Assumiong you are in the same area, are you in York Co? Lancaster Co?

      I commute to work via Carowinds blvd and always make it a point to stop for gas. And that is even pricier than a few exits down just because they are on the border.
      My legend dates back to the 12th Century you see. My legend is quite old. The 12th Century was a long time ago. It was summer and so cold from the snow because it was actually winter or maybe it was Monday. It could have been a Thursday or possibly a Saturday or was it Tuesday though it could have been Wednesday or a Monday.

      There are stations off Cherry Rd in RH $0.20 cheaper than even in TC/Ft Mill.

      Fires, power outages, the switch over to "winter gas" sure seems like a bunch of BS and just another way to pinch the working man.

      oh wait, so it takes $70 to fill my tank instead of $50? Who F'ing cares.

      Did I mention how much I'm enjoying paying $3.80 for 91 octane here in Ohio?

      Right, because there are no subways or other forms of public transport in California.

      Los Angeles:

      The primary regional public transportation agency is the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA), commonly referred to as Metro or MTA. The agency, which operates bus, light rail and subway services, averages 1.6 million transit trips per weekday,[31] making it the third largest transit agency in the United States. Other municipal transportation agencies in Los Angeles County (LADOT, Long Beach Transit, Montebello Bus Lines, Norwalk Transit, Redondo Beach, Santa Monica's Big Blue Bus, Santa Clarita Transit, Torrance Transit and Foothill Transit) have an additional 405,000 average weekday boardings
      Say hello to our subways:

      Everytime I'm in California I make it a point to look for those rail/trains but have honestly never noticed an actual station. Asked the cabbie once. Got a dirty look!

      Yes, but I'm also not going broke paying for things like housing/energy, I don't have to worry about smog checks, and auto theft is really a non issue where I'm at. Only thing that sucks is snow a few months out of the year which isn't a big deal once you get used to it.

      I still wouldn't mind living in California though

Connecticut is something like .50 a gallon in state tax
      Actually, oil is far from a free market item. Cartels are not free markets.
