The study included a look at more than 4,000 cities across the United States and Canada.

The city with the cheapest gas in the country was Duncan, S.C., where so far in 2013 the gas price has averaged $3.148 a gallon. Eight other cities in South Carolina made the GasBuddy top 10 list.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, one small city in the Mojave Desert topped the ranking. Needles, Calif., at nearly $4.74 a gallon, beat out the island town of Lihue, Hawaii, for the top spot as the most expensive city to buy gas.

All told, 95 percent of Canadian cities averaged more than $4 a gallon, while only 49 cities in the U.S. had averages over that threshold.
