How much are you willing to pay for a gallon of gas?

That used to be the question.

But now it's turned into, how far are you willing to drive to find a deal.

Gasoline prices around the QCA are very scattered right now -with some stations selling their regular gas for $3.20 per gallon - and others in the $4.00 range - within miles of each other.

KWQC Financial expert Jim Victor says that when gas goes lower in some places - and up in others - there isn't always a simple explanation.

"We think of gasoline coming from big national chain - BP, Shell and so forth - but in fact gasoline sales are entirely local. They are not at all put on by the national sources."

But like any other product - Victor says what you pay really comes down to how much is available - and how much the companies are willing to charge.

"Like any other product that is on sale, it's because the product is available at a lower price," Victor says. " The gasoline station wants to sell more to gain market share."

But the important part may be cashing in while a station is willing to make things a little easier on your wallet.

"There is no way to predict when a sale is coming," Victor explains. "And there is no way to predict how long that sale will last."
