What is the current cost per gallon for gas in the area of Morehead City? Does that change significantly during the summer months when there are tourists?

You can find that information at a Mapquest site: [GASPRICE] - Find The Lowest Gas Prices Near MOREHEAD CITY, NC at MapQuest!

But to summarize, it is $3.44 to $3.54. Whereas in inland areas like Jacksonville it is around $3.18. It is also $3.19 in Sneads Ferry. My impression is that prices are higher year round in Morehead City, not just summer.

Cheapest gas in the MHC area is typically the Wilco Hess at Roberts Rd in Newport. The gas in general is usually cheaper than New Bern or Havelock. It's sister communities. The high gas prices in that area are due to the distance from an interstate though. Even in Jacksonville the prices drop the closer you get toward Richlands/Beaulaville towards I-40. The US 70 corridor past Kinston has heading east has generally high gas prices compared with most areas of the state. At least the ones I'm intimate with from the Triangle east.

Edit: sure enough I expanded the range a few miles at that above mapquest link and the gas station I referenced was the lowest at $3.34. It's listed as 6999 US 70 E Newport
