8. Tennessee
> Price per gallon, regular: $3.59
> Cost of living: 2nd lowest
> Median household income: $41,461 (sixth lowest)
> Tax per gallon: 21.4 cents (15th lowest)

Tennessee has among the country’s lowest median household incomes. It also has the second-lowest cost of living. Although the price of regular gas has increased by nearly 40 cents in Tennessee over the past five months, it remains among the lowest rates in the country. The state also has a relatively low tax on gas. Tennessee is home to a single oil refinery, located in Memphis.

Wyoming has the lowest gas prices.

Does this mean that when gas prices hit five dollars, we can feel better about it, knowing that people in other states are paying six?

It means, consider yourself lucky to be living in Tennessee where gas, among many other things, costs less. I have to pay far more per gallon than you do.
