Paul’s Rant of the Day: Why are Gas Prices in Bozeman Lower Than Billings?
Today on the Breakfast Flakes, Mark and Paul read a story about gas prices going down across the country. Which is good news if you live in Bozeman, where gas is 4 cents a gallon cheaper than it is here in Billings.
Every day, a tanker fills up at a refinery in Billings then drives two hours to drop it off in Bozeman, then comes back to Billings to fill up again. Yet, gas is consistently cheaper in Bozeman than it is in Billings? Really? It makes absolutely no sense at all. And why does Albuquerque, New Mexico have the lowest gas prices in the country?
Mark suggested that gas prices should be the same everywhere. Paul, on the other hand, thinks we should have the cheapest gas in the region because it's refined in our back yard.
