Why is Gas Cheaper On One Side Of Town?
AAA says there are several reasons why gas prices are so different.
Typically when gas prices are moving fast, changing quickly, one station will get a more expensive load of fuel and one station will have cheaper fuel, so you'll see a huge disparity from one place to the other.
Prices have also been changing because Europe is sending less gas to the U.S.
Refineries are having their seasonal maintenance a little bit early this year, which is causing a shortage in gas.
Department of Energy officials are predicting gas prices will be cheaper this year than 2012, but that still does not settle well with people trying to fuel up right now.
