We in Buffalo have been paying well over $4 dollars per gallon - now are going down in some areas down to $2.85 - though we still have the highest gas prices in the country in WNY.

Hey, I feel your pain. At one time earlier this year, the Chicago area had the highest prices in the country. I frequently drove 30 miles out of my way to get a reasonable price to fillup and carry gas cans. Not that it saved me much money considering the distance I had to drive, but it was the principle of the thing. The only way to lower gas prices in some areas is to not buy. Those high priced stations will get the message real quick. They may not understand fair and reasonable pricing, but they do understand lack of money flowing in from motorists just driving by shopping elsewhere.

That BP station in New Lenox that I reported as $2.19 yesterday dropped overnight to $2.14. I'm counting the days until I see $1.99.

Thanks for the agreement in the post - I can't stand the corrupt gas stations around in the Buffalo area. I'm sure you and many others experience similar problems elsewhere while others pay less than half of what we pay!

I've tried to understand the rationale about gas pricing and how pockets of both high and low prices tend to move around the country. I haven't come to any conclusions since I can't see any patterns over time. It would be nice if there was more transparency with pricing and information forthcoming from the oil companies. Maybe they just do this kind of thing to keep us on our toes and keep us guessing.
