No way. Usually Mesquite, Nv is higher than Cedar City. Usually 10 to 20 cents higher. SLC is in the 3.30. GO FIGURE....

That's for sure an anomaly. Nevada has a significantly higher tax rate on fuel than Utah. I looked on GasBuddy and Mesquite seems to be out of the ordinary lower than other places in Nevada.

I would suggest filling up!

Gas was $3.46 in Cedar yesterday, the price has been plummeting over the last couple of months and it changes based on the cost of the latest/next order so there are often mis-matches.
