Ok, this is probably a strange question, but...

we are going on a roadtrip this summer, covering from North Carolina up to Boston. What are the typical, big name gas stations on the east coast? I need to know if any of our gas credit cards will be worth bringing.

In California we have Union 76, Chevron, Shell, Mobil.. Is it the same on the east coast?

AND just so I can get an idea of price differences between the east coast and my area - what are the prices right now for Unleaded gas. I just paid $3.31 this morning.

When you reply, please tell me where you are.

Thanks

Exxon, Texaco, Mobil, Shell, some Chevrons, some Raceways up in NJ/NY, some gas stations at 7-11s. Mostly the same stuff. Gas prices are in general cheaper than the West Coast. The average in the state of Virginia right now for Unleaded is $2.87. I paid $3.03 just the other day here in Northern Virginia (right outside DC). This website may help you gauge how much gas costs in various places:

You'll find those same companies here, although others -- such as Texaco or Exxon -- are more common. I remember seeing lots of BPs toward the South. Prices can vary significantly depending on specific areas, but right now, outside of Philly, it is hovering at the $3.00/gallon mark. Have fun on your road trip!

You will find more independent ones in the New England states, such as Sunoco and Valero. Sunoco is a rather large company but I don't know that I have seen it outside of New England. There will always be a Shell, Mobil, I think Chevron, and Phillips 76 are throughout the new england states.

They have Sunocos as far south as the DC area, but not Valeros to my knowledge.

In Virginia its mostly Citgo/711s. Also there's a gas station called East Coast. They have Mobiles, and Texacos too.

The gas prices here in Richmond is around 2.87 $ last time I checked.

If I'm not mistaken, didn't Lukoil buy out Exxon/Mobil or something like that? Around where I live, all the Mobils and Exxons were replaced by Lukoils.

Oh- to the OP- when you make the drive, do stop in NJ for gas. It's the cheapest you'll find (one area where NJ manages to not screw people over) and you'll get to have someone else pump it for you.

it's strange, the Lukoils I've seen were previous Texaco's. Others were Mobil and Exxon, but I still see those stations around. i guess they purchased some, and not others?
