Default cities/metros with the cheapest gas prices

As of today the national average price of unleaded regular gasoline is $2.71 a gallon, for florida it is $2.66 a gallon, and for Metro Orlando it is $2.58 a gallon. Whats the average price for your state or metro?

Which cities have cheaper gas prices compared to most cities and why do gas prices vary between cities?

My daughter just went to visit a friend in the Trenton, NJ area yesterday. She said regular gas was around 2.49 a gallon.

Jersey is always cheap. And it seems cheaper in South Jersey than North Jersey.

BTW, where I live in Philly, I just pumped my gas yesterday at $2.65 per gallon.

I just got some for $2.41, but I think the local average is in the $2.50 range.
