The cheapest gas station chain in every state

APGas prices are on the rise — here are the cheapest places to gas up in your state.
  • Gas is more expensive than it’s ever been, according to a new report.
  • Atlanta, Boston, and Chicago reported the highest daily average gas prices.
  • The average price of a gallon of gas in 2019 is $US2.70 – ten cents higher than it was last year.

If you’ve been wasting fuel in search of the cheapest gas station, you’re not the only one – according to GasBuddy.com’s2019 Fuel Price Outlook, the price you’ll pay at the pump this year is expected to be the highest it’s been since 2014. Ouch.

The national average price for a gallon of gasoline rose 10 cents to $US2.70 per gallon and total U.S. gasoline spending for 2019 is expected to reach $US386.0 billion.

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.
