We should all be so lucky.

Motorists in the Rocky Mountain region are enjoying considerably lower gas prices than the rest of the U.S. and it’s due to healthy gasoline inventories; the availability of cheap Canadian crude and refineries that operate exceptionally well.

“The Rockies region is doing very well as they are insulated from the higher price of West Texas Intermediate crude oil and can capitalize on the less expensive crude from Canada. On the last day of 2012, WTI closed at $91.82 per barrel while the Canadian crudes averaged $72.11 on the same day,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

Didn't you see? They've got so much oil there already that they're going to export some to Canada. 7;-]

Maybe if they put Keystone Pipeline in, it will lower the price here on Gulf Coast (but probably just raise prices in Rocky Mountain area)

Hover your cursor over "Gas Prices" in the bar at the top, then click on "Gas Price Heat Map" and you can look them up for yourself.

Not the only way, but an easy way to look at a region.

Natural gas is more plentiful and coming down in price, gas will have to follow. I cannot understand why we don't run all diesel trucks on natural gas(propane). It is easy to swith a diesel engine to propane, and we have 300 years worth of it.

$3.69 is bargain.

Canadian price is $1.284/ litre = $4.86 per gallon USA.

I just looked it up. The last time the price was $3.00 per gallon, $0.79 per litre was April 2003. Slightly under a decade ago; correction to my last post.

Really, why do the rest of us pay such high prices. Could it be the EPA or the present Admin. or G.W.Bush.

Upstate NY with all the canucks, quebecois coming down to buy and shop... the gas is still higher in NY state than VT because of our state taxes. Our salaries remain the same.

It makes a big difference in the monthly budget when gas is $3 instead of $4
