Where Do People Spend the Most on Gasoline?

What regions see the highest monthly expenditures on gas?

Mint.com, a website that tracks personal finances, released some data on cities where people spend the most and least on gas each month. The top three “guzzlers”: San Jose, California ($216); Birmingham, Alabama ($212); and Jacksonville Florida ($203).

The top three “teetotalers”: New York, New York ($102); Brooklyn, New York ($104); and Washington, DC ($112). Perhaps more surprisingly, the “teetotalers” include St. Louis ($138), Salt Lake City ($130), and Denver ($112).

As peak oil kicks in, those numbers will no doubt rise in many places — until people switch over to electric drive vehicles, when they will plummet.
