With Gas Prices "Crashing" Where's the Cheapest Gas in Bonney Lake and Sumner?

U.S. gas prices have dropped 46 cents a gallon over the past two months. Right now, gas is as low as $3.10 per gallon in Bonney Lake.

Gas prices in the United States have dropped by 10 cents in the last three weeks, according to the Lundberg Survey of fuel prices, which was released Sunday.

The Associated Press reports that the average cost for a gallon of regular gasoline was $3.38. 

In Bonney Lake , the cheapest places to fill up your tank Monday was Bonney Lake's Fred Meyer, where you can buy gas for $3.10 per gallon. Sumner's Fred Meyer is selling gas for $3.14 a gallon.

Figures from MapQuest show Bonney Lake as home to the cheapest gas around.

Trilby Lunberg, publisher of the Lunberg Survey, told CNN the drop in prices was due to problems at refineries being resolved, as well as a seasonal drop in demand for gasoline.

The CNN report notes that the cost of gas is still -- on average -- 8 cents higher than this time last year.

Gas prices are not crashing! When they drop below the $2.50 per gallon range then I will say they are crashing. Right now we are being gouged by the oil companies, and our state government. The oil companies have manipulated the price up and are keeping it up. The people who think a 10 cent drop is crashing are being deceived.

I'll agree with you Greg.. I only used "crashing" to reference the ABC News and other national TV coverage of it. I'll believe it when I see it! I'm ready for under $2 a gallon.
