Does Google know where I live?

Is your locality factored in the SERPS?

While doing some searches under extremely competitive keywords such as '[widget
]' I was surprised to see that most of the Adwords and SERPS returned sites from companies in my area.

Is Google looking at the geography of my IP address to influence the SERPS and AdWords?
