Earlier this month, we asked you to send in pictures of your local gas prices so we could all see how they vary across the country. Images of gas stations from all over the nation, and even a few from abroad, poured in.
Unfortunately, we couldn't include every entry, but here are a few of the best. Have a look. All the captions are by the photographers.
While this project was mostly just about seeing gas prices in different states, if you have a favorite image you can vote for it below through Wednesday, April 6. The winning entry will be announced shortly after, featured on our homepage, and printed in the next issue of GOOD. We’ll also send a GOOD T-shirt and a free subscription (or gift subscription) to the winner.
