It’s the second year in a row that the National Gas Marketers Association (NGMA) has polled its members to rank the states’ best gas deals.
The group surveyed more than 1,600 customers to come up with its rankings, which are based on average prices charged by the state’s major suppliers to consumers.
NGA said that gas prices in 2017 were the second-highest since it started collecting data in 2007, behind only New York.
A look at the top 25 states based on NGA’s survey shows that it is not hard to see why.
The states in the top 20 include Texas, where gas is about $1 a gallon cheaper than the national average.
Other states with higher prices include Colorado, where it is $1.15 a gallon, Utah, where $1 is about half of what it is in the national averages, and Texas, which is $3.30.
New York, California, and Colorado have the most expensive gas in the country.
In California, average gas prices are more than $1 per gallon, while in Texas they are about $3 a gallon.
Other top states include Oklahoma, where the average gas is $4.25 a gallon; Idaho, where average gas costs $4; Wyoming, where prices are $4 and up; Georgia, where costs are $3 and up, and South Dakota, where they are $1 and up.
New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut all have average gas price of about $2 a gallon and are in the bottom two in terms of average gas.
New York has the lowest gas prices of any state, while Pennsylvania has the highest.
The top 20 states with the highest average gas bills in 2017 are as follows:The top 10 states with gas prices highest in 2017:Alaska, $4 a gallonOklahoma, $2.10 a gallonNorth Dakota, $1 average a gallonColorado, $3 average a galNew Mexico, $6 average agallWest Virginia, $9 average agalIllinois, $5 average a tonIllinois is the only state in the United States that does not charge customers a sales tax.
That means Illinois residents are getting more bang for their buck than those who pay in other states.
Alaska is a state that does charge sales tax, which the state does not account for, although the state also charges consumers who use their gas for transportation to other states, and some residents have argued that this is a subsidy.
