Here’s the current distribution of gas prices in the United States, according to Grand Rapids Gas Buddy. Prices are high on the West Coast. What is also striking is that in the five states that are the homes of most of the Big 10 schools (Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio), prices are noticeably higher than in the surrounding states. Is the big BP refinery shutdown to blame? Hmm, which big gasoline retailer is located primarily in those five states?
