Gas Price Drumbeat: Same gas 20 cents cheaper 20 miles away

Mike Ellis writes:

I purchased gas in Campbellsville on May 30, then drove to Columbia. As I entered our city limits and passed by the Gate on N-55 noticed gas was $2.79.9 per gallon and drove passt Jamestown hill and notice gas prices the same price. I had just left Campbellsville and paid less than $2.55 for the same gas, drove straight to Columbia. - MIKE ELLIS

Gas Prices 30 May 2015: Lebanon, $2.39.9; Columbia, $2.79.9

2015-05-31 - Lebanon, KY - Photo by Junior Stotts.
Mike Ellis wrote earlier this morning that he had found gas 20 cents gallon per gallon less than Columbia, in Campbellsville. That's just 20 miles away. Junior Stotts sends this photo, from 20 miles further up the road, where the gas is 40 cents per gallon lower. Does anybody know? Is there a pattern here. At a penny a mile less per mile, how far north does one have to travel to get free gas? Probably not. But it does make you wonder just how cheap gas is elsewhere. - CM
