Higher Gas Prices in Blacksburg Compared to Richmond

I find it interesting that gas prices are relatively cheaper where I live as compared to Blacksburg, home of the Hokies.  Since I live near Richmond, I would expect the prices to be higher due to proximity to the city. Then again, because Blacksburg is essentially in the middle of nowhere surrounded by a bunch of college students, it would make sense for gas prices to be higher due to high demand combined with limited supply due to the isolation of Blacksburg.

Thoughts?
