GAS PRICES CONTINUE TO DECREASE IN ALABAMA

By WVUA 23 Web Coordinator Alexandra Adragna

Back in 2013, gas prices in Alabama were at an astonishing $3.63 per gallon. Over the years, that price has significantly decreased.

The national average of gasoline has decreased 7.3 cents per gallon during the last month. Even as oil prices were in rally mode at the end of last week, gasoline prices continued going down with the national average moving lower for the third consecutive week.

“I think it’s certainly possible that average prices in the state could rise anywhere to 25 cents to 50 cents a gallon, by Memorial Day Weekend,” said Patrick DeHaan, the senior of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.com. “I think the increase would probably hover on the lower side of that range. But by Memorial Day Weekend, that could lead to average state wide price that’s from $2.50 a gallon, or perhaps higher.”

Some people don’t even bother looking as gas station prices. But, if you’re someone who likes to save money, gas stations like this one offer a free membership card where you can save up to three cents per gallon. Every little bit counts.

Alabama’s gas prices always remain low in comparison to many others up North. But, as the weather gets warmer, we can expect gasoline demand and prices to increase soon. .
