What is wrong with this picture?

I'll tell you what is wrong, besides the ridiculous price at each pump. Each of these was taken on the same day---mere hours apart.
Same gas. Slightly different company.

The one small difference:
The $2.09 gas is in Georgia, about 3 hours outside of Gainesville FL on I-75.

This one is smack dab in Gainesville on I-75 as well. Are we seriously supposed to believe that it is okay to have a 60 cent difference in gas that is being sold in a relatively close area? Now I know we voted for some extra taxes on our gas for a couple of years, but it was only 1-2 cents...not 60!
Alachua County needs to get in touch and at the very least put us at the same prices as Marion County. I can drive 30 minutes outside of Gainesville to the south and pay 20-30 cents less for a gallon of gas.
Something really stinks. Just because it is football season, and fall semester is in, don't punish us with above state average prices. Really makes you want to load up the car and visit Grandma for the holidays, huh?
