Will inflation and already high gas prices keep us off the road this Labor Day Weekend? No way! We're boarding planes, trains, and automobiles to celebrate the last weekend of summer anywhere but home.

Sure a few more Americans than usual are staying home this year, but less so than did for the 4th of July.

Maybe it's because gas prices are going back down (though we hope they drop a lot further).

Maybe it's because we're stubborn and determined to squeeze every last bit of fun out of  summer - no matter what.

All I know is that we still want to save money where we can. To that end, I've put together a list of the cheapest gas prices in the Tri-Cities area. I've also included the highest gas price in the state, just so you know that it could be worse.

$4.08 Gasoline

  • Love's Travel Stop, 2252 E Kartchner St, Pasco
  • Mid Columbia Grocery, 6409 W. Court St.

$4.09 Gasoline

  • 76, 2100 E Hillsboro St, Pasco

$4.11 Gasoline

  • Costco, 8505 W. Gage Blvd, Kennewick

$4.19 Gasoline

  • General Store, 214410 E. WA-397, Finley
  • Coleman Oil, 2451 Logan St., Richland
  • Exxon & Circle K, 3957 W. Van Giesen St., West Richland

From there, gas prices only go up - by a dime or more per gallon. Can you guess where gas prices are worst?

Gas Prices are Always Changing

The prices above are likely to change, but I'm willing to bet those locations will still have the best prices. Check Gas Buddy for the latest, greatest.

Good luck out there. And happy travels!
