Where is liquor cheapest? MD, VA or DC?

I've purchased booze from state-run liquor stores in Virginia, a number of different shops in DC, and at least one place in Maryland.

Aside from any potential legal restrictions in purchasing alcohol in one jurisdiction and consuming it in another, is there a consensus on what parts of the DC metropolitan area are cheapest for buying generic, non-specialty liquors are cheaper?

I'm basically wondering if there's a potential I'll save a couple bucks buying medium-grade vodkas and rums in Virginia or Maryland over DC (or vice versa).
