I think I’ve linked to this before:
Get a better look at GasBuddy.com. Considering Murdoc’s recent trip to Maine and back to Michigan, this certainly looks right. Particularly the higher prices in New York.
What Murdoc would really like to see is a map like this that shows:
- Gas prices (like this map)
- Gas prices minus taxes
I don’t know for sure, but Murdoc’s betting that the final option would explain a lot of yellow and red counties.
Not that I’m opposed to gas taxes. In fact, the gas tax is one tax that I don’t have a whole lot of trouble with. But if we’re all going to be up in arms over gas prices, which seems like a rational reaction at times, let’s at least consider the whole picture.
