Priciest gas is in HR

Over the last dozed or so years I have travelled frequently to many parts of the country. During the entire period with no exceptions the highest price I have seen for gasoline on each trip has been in Parkdale followed by Odell and then Hood River. Not even in the remotest places I have been, even where the signs said "no gas for the next 105 miles", has gas cost what it does in the Hood River Valley. As recently as four weeks ago I found gasoline to be 70 cents a gallon cheaper in Virginia than in Hood River and I suspect that in Texas or Oklahoma it would have been an additional dime or two cheaper still.
