ruxprice.jpgLooks like we resumed the end-of-weekend gas-price survey runs just in time – driving around West Seattle lincpark.jpga few hours ago, we discovered some stations had dropped prices for regular gas by 30 cents (or more) in the past week. At left, you see the lowest price we found (at the station that made news this past week for a different reason); at right, the highest. The full list, with April and June prices for comparison, ahead:

One note: With the switchover of Delridge Exxon to 76, it too – like the Andover/California station that made the same switch last spring – only posts the price for regular now, so that’s all that’s reflected below. For all others, the second price is what’s posted for premium:
