A Variety of Creative Gas Prices "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on July 6, 2012

Gas prices turn out to vary even within a city, depending on where you buy your gas. This SacTV video looks at the various gas prices at the same intersection and just a few miles away on July 5, 2012. The prices ranged from $3.43 to $3.76 per gallon for regular unleaded. Of course, if you're buying ten gallons of gas, that's a difference of over a couple of bucks that may have been spent on a drink. Some people are unaware that some gas stations are drinking their cash. Checking with on the homepage, the national average for regular unleaded gas prices on this day was $3.40 per gallon while the average in Sacramento was $3.60.

At the intersection of Fair Oaks Boulevard and Watt Avenue there was a tale of four gas stations. Arco AMPM was the only station to come near the national average, selling gas at $3.43, while Shell's price was $3.69, Conoco/76 was $3.65 and Chevron was $3.69. Not far away at the intersection of Arden Way and Eastern Avenue Valero's price was $3.67 while locally-owned Scott's Corner had among the highest price in the county at $3.76. According to prices Sacramento prices ranged from $3.38 to $3.79. The reason Arco sells gas cheaper is that it's a different kind of gas called "EC unleaded," which is designed to cut down emissions as well as cost of gas. Taking a cue from Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, it pays to "Shop Around."
