Validators minimum gas price

Hi,

I read that validators agreed on 1Gwei gas price.
But, I encountered strange behavior, with some transactions taking longer than 5 seconds

So, my team & I run few tests, and clearly with a gas price setted at 10 gwei, few more validators accept our transactions.

So, we looked at the past and checked for some 10k blocks last week and grouped it by validator addresses, and see a lot of differences :
{ ‘0x3091aee5cb7a290da8e05cc4b70dac7715de39a0’: { min: 1, max: 10, moy: 3, txNb: 388 },

‘0xbc70e7a838ef3d468e25efa5ecb8946d3d0f913b’: { min: 1, max: 10, moy: 10, txNb: 181 },

‘0x49bbdebd7f3d39f297135d7af3831ce152a99b67’: { min: 1, max: 10, moy: 10, txNb: 106 },
‘0xf81110c5cc7f258ecfd079faecc140331d187232’: { min: 1, max: 10, moy: 10, txNb: 120 },
‘0x0c6c0665804fd28cd8d1b2208104e31ce2051ce2’: { min: 1, max: 10, moy: 3, txNb: 589 },
‘0xdc4765d9dabf6c6c4908fe97e649ef1f05cb6252’: { min: 10, max: 10, moy: 10, txNb: 114 } }

So, first, it seams that if we want our transaction to be processed ASAP, 10 gwei gas price is the minimum.

And I wanted to know :

  • are these settings normal ? (I think 1 gwei was the norm and could change in the future based on the congestion of POA. But clearly right now, it seems pretty empty …)
  • is there any public list of accepted gas price for each validators to adapt our gas price.

Thanks a lot !
