    I went from Nashville to just outside Smithville, TN (Center Hill Lake) for Labor Day weekend. I couldn't help but notice the dramatic difference in the price of gas.

    In Nashville, it was around $2.80 for a gallon of regular on Friday. That same day, I saw a station in Smithville selling a gallon of regular for $2.50 (and other stations weren't far above). Those other stations even came down closer by Monday, but the prices were still much higher in Nashville when I got back. I live in Bellevue, so the price of gas is always a bit lower than in Nashville, but nothing like those differences.

    So I was wondering how much other people outside of Nashville are paying for gas right now. Are other metropolitan areas just as high as we are? Are people who live in non-metropolitan areas seeing prices similar to what I saw in Smithville?

    I noticed the same.

    It was $2.75 in Franklin and $2.39 just a few miles west of Kingston. Prices began to drop at Cookville going east.

    damn, we are paying around $1.40 a litre. A litre is about .20 of a gallon.

    It's about an average of $2.65 or so here in central Texas too.

    I think you'll find that gasoline prices mirror most everything else. In metropolitan areas, a gallon is much higher than in rural places where the cost of living is lower and average salaries are lower.

    A friend of mine knows old man Haslam (Pilot Oil) and he asked him how they determine gas prices because one of his stations in east Knoxville was cheaper than one in west Knoxville. Haslam just said "whatever the market will bear."
