Not in NC !!!.....I know, they said that in the article. But, I had to get it out. Makes me mad. Lucky for me SC is close and they have low taxes. 15-30 cents less per gallon for diesel.

I agree with RNC11:

Wow taxes lowed? Where? Not here.
The government gets 57 cents a gallon for a every gallon of gas sold in Michigan. And the oil company makes 8 cents a gallon but we complain about how much the oil companies make while the government makes more than seven times as much as the oil companies.

Shrink big government. NoBama 2012 is a good place to start.

So that's why gas prices are 25 cents higher this year then last year...

As for your map the blue states should be RED and the red states should be BLUE...

OGW: "The national selling price for gasoline acroos the country should be set by the feds and not the oil companies."

You can always move to Venezuela, Cuba or North Korea if you want the feds to control prices. In most of the rest of the world including here, we are a free market which is what sets the price of gasoline. It is not set by oil companies.

Not here in Michigan. Some people are paying 4.3% more in state tax and gas taxes go UP every time there is an increase in the price of gas. Have not fallen here.

Net receipts are down so taxes received thereon are down. Percentage remains the same.

Unemployment means far fewer miles being driven. And it is getting worse not better.

It's nice to see the average go down, but here in CA, they are one of the highest.
