Riddle me this, Batman

So, here I am in lovely Thompson Falls, middle of nowhere, Montana (pop. ~1,500) enjoying the scenery and wildlife. I'm perplexed as to how I can drive through this town and pass three gas stations who all offer gas at a lower price ($1.99/gallon) than what I can get back home in Bellevue, WA (pop. ~120,000). In fact, the highest price in Thompson Falls ($2.11/gallon) is well below the lowest price in Bellevue, WA ($2.41).

What's up with that?

haha yea I believe it has to with our huge gas tax in Washington. I am not complaining about it (we need transportation improvements) but it is painful.
