Just got back from 2 weeks in northern California. All grades of gas are more expensive there but the regular/premium difference is only 20 cents/gallon whereas here in central North Carolina it's 50 cents a gallon. Someone's making a sh_tload of money off us!

The east coast is fed primarily from Texas based refineries. Each refinery loads into a few pipelines that then dump into tanks and then to gas stations. So all brands but Amoco premium, are mixed together. The only difference is the additives added at the local tankfarms just before delivery at the station. So in North Carolina, all the big oil refiners are putting the screws to you.
