The cheapest gas station chain in every state

If you’ve been wasting fuel in search of the cheapest gas station, you’re not the only one – according to GasBuddy.com’s2018 Fuel Price Outlook, the price you’ll pay at the pump this year is expected to be the highest it’s been since 2014, with the yearly national average for a gallon of gas predicted to rise 19 cents versus last year. Ouch.

The national average price for a gallon of gasoline rose 2 cents to $US2.60 per gallon, with an expected average gas price being 25 to 50 cents per gallon higher by Memorial Day.

But, there’s some good news – GasBuddy’s forecast doesn’t expect any record-breaking prices this year, and most of the U.S. will see prices peak under $US3 a gallon (although the national average could push close to $US3 a gallon). And on top of that, there are still some gas chains that are well below the national average.

Luckily, we’ve done some digging at GasBuddy.com to find them for you – at every state, including Washington DC.
