Gas Price Variations
Doesn't explain why gas in Humboldt is more expensive than most other places but the Santa Rosa Press- Democrat takes a look this morning at the reason for the price variations for gasoline in Sonoma County.
At first glance, I thought their prices varied more than Humboldt's. Upon closer scrutiny it looks like they're about the same as Humboldt with prices varying up to ten cents a gallon.
Still, their prices seem to vary among many different stations, as best I can tell, whereas Humboldt's seem to be Renner Petroleum, with the lowest, versus all other stations that seem to be around ten cents more expensive than Renner's on average.
Oh, and then there's Costco, which the AAA web site doesn't show a current or past price for.
That AAA Gas Price Finder is pretty neat. I'll have to try that next time I head south, although the Willits Safeway seems to always have the lowest prices in my experience.
