More regarding the prices of gasoline in Payson. One does not need to go out of Arizona to find a significant difference in prices.
On Saturday, Oct. 27, we paid $1.119 for regular unleaded in Prescott. The operator said the price had been below $1.20 for weeks and that his price was matched in Prescott Valley. He denied they were having a "gas war" and said he'd been told to expect a further drop in prices within the next several weeks.
Numerous examples of $1.149 were seen throughout the area. However, several of the large corporation outlets were still matching Payson's price for that date of $1.439.
