Gas prices changing from state to state 
We recently took a trip and I have to say, I'm amazed on how much the gas prices jumps the moment that you cross the border of one state and go into another. We decided to fuel up in SC and it was about $4.24 for diesel but when we crossed into NC, we were shocked that it was just $3.65. And they are just right beside each other! Anyone can shed some light on this?

It depends on a lot of factors like state taxes and environmental programs.

I did a bit of checking around. Apparently, the further it is from the refinery, the more expensive the gas prices also are.

Yeah, I heard that's one of the factors, too. Apparently, also the days when you fill up. From experience, gas prices seem to get higher when you fill up on the weekends. I guess they are trying to take advantage of a lot of people going out to take a break.

Between states is no big surprise, it varies greatly within a state, near my house, regular gas is $3.55, on I-81 anywhere near Roanoke, it runs from $3.23- $3.37. Around Richmond, it varies from one side of town to another.
