 CLEVELAND, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleveland area motorists today are paying anywhere from 97.9 cents per gallon to $1.869 per gallon (a difference of nearly 90 cents) for regular unleaded gasoline, depending on where and how they buy.

 Cuyahoga County Auditor Tim McCormack issued a report today on the wide disparity of the price of unleaded gasoline in the Cleveland area.
 "I know for a fact that many people who ask for full-serve gasoline are not aware that they are paying nearly 90 cents more per gallon ($18.00 more per fill-up on a 20-gallon tank)," McCormack stated.
 The average difference in the price of a gallon of self-serve unleaded regular gasoline vs. full-serve is 42.3 cents ($1.423 vs. $1.07) in Cuyahoga County.
 According to a gasoline price survey conducted by McCormack, motorists who reside on the eastern side of the county pay 5.8 cents per gallon ($1.097 vs. $1.039) more than their west side counterparts.
 At some service stations throughout the county, there is a variance as large as .89 cents per gallon ($.979 vs. $1.869) between the price of self-serve versus full-serve.
 The price of gasoline within the county continues to drop. Within the past two weeks, gas prices have dropped 2.5 cents per gallon. Since November, the price has fallen 10.9 cents per gallon.
