Coy, Alabama, Wilcox County

A moth rests near the price indicator on a pump at Roy Saulsberry Jr.'s convenience store. Wilcox County has the unhappy distinction of having the nation's highest percentage of income spent on gasoline; residents spend more than 13% of their monthly income on gas, according to the Oil Price Information Service. By contrast, the average Los Angeles County household spends 3.9% of its monthly income on gasoline. Michael E. Palmer / For The Times
