Far from I-80

The cost of gasoline in the southern coal region is almost always higher than in Danville, due to the added cost of trucking it here. The farther a town is from Interstate 80, the higher the retail price per gallon. As the saying goes, “Shamokin is five miles from nowhere.” Sad, but true.
