Several weeks ago, in St. Louis gas was $3.40 a gallon and when I got to Peoria that day it was $3.79. Have never understood it. It is even sometimes in E. Peoria about 15 to 20 cents cheaper.
Edwardsville is competing with Missouri gas stations, who enjoy a lower state tax.
While I am not going to research it, I believe that almost all gas stations in Peoria (and other communities) all post the same prices, is that all gas supply is furnished by 1,2, or 3 major corporations and it is they who set the cost of gas and are making sure one station doesn't undercut the other.Consequeces of not doing so? Many.
