Why is the gas in Uvalda 10 to 20 cents cheaper than Hazlehurst, Baxley or Vidalia. Burnettes country store by the Dollar General routinely is 10 to 20 less than Hazlehurst :)

It dosn't really make a differents if its a couple cents more unless your poor. Maybe if you don't want to use gas than get a horse or a cow.

Fitzgerald 3.12 10 cents off 3.02 at murphy. city wide price average 3.12 . dublin prices average 3.22. Hazlehurst has always been higher than anywhere else, no wonder the residents travel out of town. Thanks to fuel south for controling the prices there in Hazlehurst. I wish gas would go to 10 bucks a gallon there. theres no jobs so every body there would have to sit home and fade away just like the town has done. such a waste land there.

This is a complicated question. I would respond generally that oil is a commodity and commodities are the most volatile things in the world.

Secondly you mix in our economic supply and demand system and add a little greed and you have the answer.

It involves several factors. 1. the proximity to the terminals where the gas is picked up to deliver to stations. For example.. the closer you live to macon the cheaper it will be because there is a terminal in Macon. The gas taken from the terminals in jacksonville, fl is more expensive because they tack on port fees. And those are passed on the stations and to the consumers. 2. The lack of competion in a town. one station means they can control the price better. More stateions mean they have competion and will be more in line with the average cost per gallon. 3. The quality of the fuel. Branded fuel(exxon, shell) cost more because they are better quality. Independant stores (sonoco, walmart) can purchase from whomever they choose and it may not be the best quality. If you have ever smelled rotten egg smell from running car that means the fuel they bought was "cheap" fuel. It was stored in large tanks and pumped full of methane gas to increase the octane just enough to make a car run. It is not good for your vehicle. 4. Oh yeah...Dont forget greed. That starts all the way at the top. service stations are not getting rich on selling fuel. they only make 1 to 3 cent per gallon........ I hope this answers some questions. I know it won't all.

Well by the reaction to my answer, looks like the only answer ya'll were looking for was inflamatory retoric instead of actual information.
