A tank in Memphis, Tennessee gas prices in the State in the past by 9.7 percent fills Travis Wayne 12 months fallen-the fourth largest decline of the country.

By Lisa A. Nelson and Samuel Weigley have 24/7 Wall St.Fiscal suffer in Europe and sluggish employment growth in the United States put downward pressure on oil prices. As a result, gasoline prices in two States fell last month, dropping 7.1 per cent across the country. Gas prices on the edge are this in many of less than $3 per gallon.

Despite the general decline in the area between gas prices between the States is still wide. 24/7 Wall St. examines AAA fuel gauge daily report the 10 States determine their Bewohner pay the least at the pump. We found that the decisive factor in determining the price of gas is location. Most of the States with low gas prices are located on or near the Gulf of Mexico. You have also the lowest gas taxes in the country.

Five of the 10 States with the lowest gas prices are on the Gulf Coast, where disproportionately much crude oil is processed. Also among the five countries not on the Gulf Coast borders three coastal States. Residents of these three countries benefit from lower costs for the transport of oil.

"Gulf Coast States benefit, that at any time access to the refineries, which are in the region,", says AAA spokesman Michael green. "In fact Gulf Coast refineries produce the most petrol from any region of the country and have usually a surplus, which means that they send gasoline is to other parts of the country in Gulf Coast refineries."

The States with the lowest gas prices have a more steep decline of seen these prices when compared to the rest of the country. Enjoy lower prices than South Carolina and Mississippi, the States with the two lowest gas prices, now by 9.1 percent to a month ago. Green crude West Texas intermediate (WTI), produced primarily in the Gulf Coast region is cheaper than other forms of crude oil, and has pointed out, a faster decline in the price seen.

Another factor for the gas prices is a State gasoline tax. All but two States on this list are in the lower half of the Member States in relation to the total taxes collected, which contain a federal 18.4 cent a gallon tax and State control. But the relationship between gas taxes and prices is far from perfect. Alaska has the lowest gas control but the second highest gas prices. The States with the second and third lowest gas control, Wyoming, and New Jersey did not our list.

While not always the case tends to transport costs in the States on 24/7 list be lower than the national average. Nine of the 10 States are in the lower half of the States with regard to transport costs, three in the bottom 10 States.

AAA provided 24/7 Wall St. the latest average price of regular unleaded gasoline by the State. The Organization offered prices in a week, a month, and one year before. Also the number of refineries and refining capacity from 1 January this year by the US energy information administration investigated 24/7 Wall St. provided. The American Petroleum Institute in accordance with State gas control who were also from the beginning of this year. These include State gas taxes and other taxes (including VAT).
