For years, the cheapest gasoline in the state has been within blocks of the house I own in Houston. I was there earlier in the week on a video production job and wasn’t surprised to see the prices nearly 40 cents below San Marcos gas. What shocked me was this:

Nice. You see the Chevron across the street has an electronic sign – they can change the rate easily from inside the story. At this Shell, they have to go get the numbers, grab a ladder, and make the changes each time.

The rate at the Chevron? $3.19/gallon
