Why is gas priced higher in St.Peters than elsewhere? Right now, according to the price listings, it's 10-15 cents higher than other places.

Lexington, Kentucky is the same way with prices .30-.40 cents per gallon higher than Winchester, Kentucky which is just 18 miles away.

I lived in Weldon Spring and St Peters MO has a tax on gas that is not present in St Charles County itself.

You really should post in the local St Louis forum, you would get better answers.

I asked the mods to move this to St Louis for you.

First, gas prices in St. Peters are about $3.17 a gallon (except for the Costco station which is significantly lower than $3.17 a gallon), whereas in the rest of the St. Louis area prices range from about $2.90 to about $3.39 a gallon.

St. Peters' gas prices are higher on average than Missouri as a whole, but slightly lower priced, on average, than the St. Louis area as a whole. You're St. Peters is pretty much at or below average, even though you may be 10-15 cents higher than some other places. You're not saying that you're also 10-15 cents, or more, lower than other places.

Sorry, but you're simply throwing out random prices for random stations.

Second, you;'re asking about local prices in a specific area. This might be a better question for your local St. Louis discussion category, where local Gas Buddy members can better respond to your concerns.
