Why is it ‘in prison’ and ‘in hospital’ but ‘at home’ and ‘at the supermarket’?

What’s the difference between along and across?

For the past couple of months, Tribalingua has been running a preposition competition in the office and the results were finally announced this week. Prizes included a slap on the back, certificate and free beer.
