Locations with the Highest Gas Prices
by Nick Selbe
Nothing brings you down more than having to fill up your gas tank. Using data from the Council for Community and Economic Research, CareerTrends found the 50 locations with the highest gas prices.
The cost of gas in the U.S. is in a constant state of flux. The average price per gallon jumped by 9 cents in the past two weeks to $2.27 a gallon, likely a result of the hike in oil prices, according to the Washington Post.
Many people pay even more at the pump, and CareerTrends found the 50 locations with the highest gas prices in 2015. The data comes from the Council for Community and Economic Research's Cost of Living Index. The list features the cost of one gallon of regular unleaded gas from a national brand, including all taxes.
At the top of the list are cities -- such as San Diego and San Francisco -- in which the cost of living is generally high, and these states tend to have high gas taxes. California features nine cities on the list, and all of them are in the top 21 -- including five in the top 10.
Note: In the event of ties, the location with the largest population was ranked higher on the list.
