Gas prices drop 5.7 cents in Alabama
Average gas prices fell 5.7 cents per gallon in Alabama over the past week, down to an average of $3.35 a gallon, according to GasBuddy‘s survey of 3,348 gas stations in Alabama.
Prices in the state are 15.5 cents higher than this time last month, and 17.4 cents per gallon higher than this time last year.
Nationally, prices fell 9.3 cents a gallon, down to an average of $3.77 a gallon as of Sunday. The price of diesel rose 4 cents over the past week, up to $5.30 a gallon.
“Average gas prices have declined for the second straight week with significant declines in the West and Great Lakes having an oversized effect on the drop in the national average,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “Motorists are reminded that the decline in gasoline prices is seasonal and should continue into the fall, and is unrelated to the coming election.”
