I'd say the gas prices in the rest of the country, skew prices lower, because our West coast prices are so high........ & it ain't just refinery maintenance. With near-by gas prices near $3.50, got to go some to find a gallon of gasoline anywhere near $3 & small change.
Anyhow, with "summer" gas giving higher MPG, it was nice that our Hyundai Elantra, bad-mouthed & sued by leadfooters who couldn't get 30MPG, gave 39MPG, while passing over two 4000+ foot mountain passes, a 2500 foot pass & a 1500 foot ridge. AND while returning another way, a stop for $3.03/gal. gasoline, turned 45MPG while passing over a 3000 foot mountain pass.
