That's because TX has it's own resources! Studies show that TX is the only state that could survive on it's own if separated from the US. Hook em!

Will everyone longing for the days of $1.50 and $2.00/gal gas please let it go already?! Why stop at $1.50? Gas used to be 99 cents/gal, too.

Those prices will NEVER come back. Time to move on.

Prices can vary. There is still a chance that the 2 prices may not be really the absolute highest and lowest in he nation.
