The American Petroleum Institute, a lobby group for oil companies, has released the latest annual list of America’s top gas stations.
The rankings, released Tuesday, highlight the cost of fuel and what types of products can be purchased at gas stations across the country.
For example, the average price of gas at the pump at the nation’s three largest gas stations is $3.85 per gallon, according to the study.
That’s nearly triple the national average of $1.99.
At the pump, the cost is $1,564.90, while the cost at the gas station is $2,973.50.
The cheapest gas station, at $3 per gallon at the national gas station average, is the KFC in Memphis, Tenn.
At that rate, a family of four would pay more than $5,000 for gas at that station.
The average price at the average gas station in the state of Wyoming is $4.49 per gallon.
Gas prices have increased sharply over the past year.
Gas prices rose to $3 a gallon in June, the most recent month for which data is available.
According to the survey, the median household income for households earning $50,000 or less increased to $53,664 in 2017.
“It’s clear that Americans are increasingly looking to the convenience of buying their favorite beverages and convenience food at gas pumps,” said Mark Erikson, executive director of the American Petroleum Association.
“Gas is one of the least expensive places to buy goods and services.”
Erikson added that the gas price increases in the past few years are consistent with a national trend.
“This is what happens when you allow oil and gas companies to set their own prices,” he said.
“They set prices that are set by the oil and the gas companies, and that’s not good for consumers, it’s not great for the environment, and it’s very bad for job growth.”
