    Kind of interesting how some metropolitan zip codes are cheaper than their respective rural areas (i.e. Omaha, Des Moines, Topeka, Milwaukee, etc.)

    This map looks to me like it might be as much a reflection on local taxes on gas as it is about rising oil prices. Much of the South has low taxes on gas, as do Indiana and Michigan. Wisconsin and Illinois have higher gas taxes, as does much of the East and West coasts.

    The interesting thing is that the gas companies are blaming shortages in refining capabilities in the gulf area as one of the main problems - yet some of the areas with the highest gas prices get their gas from refineries in Alaska not from the gulf.

    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Hmm Michigan votes democratic in most presidential elections (its a swing state), yet its gas taxes are low as is Wisconsin (see Pete Rock)
