Oregon drivers are paying more than others around the US as the price of gas drops but remains above the four dollar mark.
The average cost of gas in Oregon is $4.10. Southern Oregon, has some of the highest prices in the state. Oregon, which produces none of its own gasoline is completely reliant on out-of-state sources. Oregon also has the eighth-highest state gasoline tax in the country and a prohibition on self-service gas stations. Oregon also has a high proportion of rural areas, which makes bringing gas in from somewhere else more expensive
