That's because NY taxes the *censored* out of your fuel. By comparison, NJ has no tax on fuel - check out their prices.
Some other things I've recently learned about why gas is so high on both the left & right coasts: most states with high populations of drivers buy their refined oil from china or the middle east ... while the midwestern states get it from here or Canada. Makes you wonder .... WHY that is??
My guess is so states like NY & MA can screw their populace with more fuel taxes.
MA one-ups you with adding 20% ethanol .... so your mileage sucks, and your back to the station much sooner than you should be. Multiply that by 4 million registered vehicles in MA, & you see my point.
