Top 10 States with the Cheapest Gas

FoxBusiness -- Concerns about global economic weakness have pushed crude oil prices down in recent weeks. The decline was seen in gas prices, too. As of December 6, national prices averaged $3.38 per gallon, down from $3.46 per gallon a month before. Some states have kept their prices significantly below the average nationwide price. Based on data from The American Automobile Association, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the 10 states with the lowest gas prices.

States impose gasoline taxes and fees, in addition to federal gasoline taxes. These taxes can vary significantly from state to state, affecting regional prices. It’s not surprising then to find that the ten states with the lowest gas prices tend to have among the lowest fuel taxes. The states on this list are below the median in terms of taxes and fees,

Interesting list of places I wouldn't want to live, at least compared to where we live now. I'll gladly pay for what we've got.

Very idiotic to post an article with a title of top ten and not give the whole list. But what can you expect from Fox? Would have been nice if aservant had actually read the article and seen there was a link to the whole list on another website and saved us all the trouble.
While it would be nice to have cheap gas, I wouldn't trade where I live for any of those top ten states.

Chris46...The way I look at it, is gas is $2.89 at my corner station and cheaper if I wanted to drive. OKC unemployment is around 5%, so you can work if you want to. You can buy a fine house of 2,000 sq. ft for less than $159,000, and we all have NG piped into out homes which is dirt cheap. AND, we don't have to shovel snow.

Seems like heaven to me!

"States with refineries also tend to have lower prices because oil can be moved to local stations at much cheaper prices, which results in lower prices at the pump."

Ever hear of proofreading
Last time I checked oil was not moved to local stations
Gasoline is trucked/transported

Ohio does well at times. Until GREEDway (Speedway) spikes us every week or so.

Bet none are the Speedway/Marathon states from Michigan to Kentucky. Just look at the gas price map (at top of this page) and it is very obvious.
