Gas cheaper in US or Canada?

We are traveling by car from Boston to Niagara Falls and was wondering if it is better to fill up our gas tank before we cross the border into Canada, if so where? Since we are from the West Coast and are unfamiliar with gas station names on the East Coast, which are the best priced chains that we need to look for along the way on our road trip. Where we live, we either go to Costco or Safeway for gas. Thanks for any advice.

Keep in mind gas prices are always less expensive in the US but NYS has still expensive gas as comparing to many other states. In Canada prices are for a litter not a gallon

Smokin Joes has the cheapest gas

$5.00 a gallon Cdn

to about $3.50 a Gallon US, its worth the drive out there if you are in the falls, many canadians drive out there for gas
