Petaluma gas prices high compared to Santa Rosa

  • With prices for regular gas going over $4.00 Alan Filippi of Petaluma fills up his cars gas tank at the Shell station on the corner of Payran and Petaluma blvd. North on Monday March 17, 2014.

Do Petalumans pay higher gas prices than people in Santa Rosa?

It certainly looks that way.

If you were scanning gas prices on websites such as GasPriceWatch.com Tuesday, you could see the fairly logical cascade of prices along the Highway 101 corridor from San Rafael to Santa Rosa.

San Rafael averaged $3.99. Novato averaged $3.98. Petaluma came in at an average of $3.97. Rohnert Park averaged $3.89, and Santa Rosa averaged $3.84, or 13 cents less than Petaluma's average.

The farther you get from the bay, it seems, the lower the price.
