This is an interesting way to display the cost of gasoline across the United States. It’s the “heat map” for gas prices broken down by county and displayed by color.As you can see, Georgia, Illinois, and Michigan are the “hottest” which means they are currently paying the most for the price of a gallon of gasoline.
The red areas represent gas prices that are $4.00 (US) or higher. What this doesn’t show are areas that are out of gas, like in the Atlanta area right now. (See comments posted by an Atlanta residents here.) Also, according to this news report, as high as 85% of the Nashville area gas stations are out of gas. And, this news report states that Nashville may not return to normal gas levels for another week. THAT is a shortage!
