This I didn't know: Alaska has the highest gas prices in the US? Wow. The average up there in Klondike country is $4.63. California follows pretty closely at $4.50, and Hawaii, Connecticut, and Washington round out the top five.
So where should you be heading to fill up? Missouri is the cheapest at $3.86 (aw! Remember $3 gas! I made a scrapbook of it!) helped along by their record-low gas tax. Oklahoma, South Carolina, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Iowa round out the cheapest five states to fill up. So now that gas stations are having to use up a whole bunch more "4"s to fill their prices signs, where in the world will they get them all?
Can you guess who had this explanation for it? "I know what you're thinking. The fours have probably been replaced by illegal Mexican quatros." To find out, read more.
Last night on the Colbert Report, Stephen showed off his capitalistic prowess claiming that he's got the monopoly on all the fours needed for the rising gas prices. Funny, but let's hope he doesn't have a stockpile of fives, too? OK, Stephen? You hear me?
