Gas prices fall another 8.9 cents over past week
Average gas prices in Alabama fell 8.9 cents in the past week, down to an average of $2.59 a gallon today, according to GasBuddy‘s survey of 3,358 gas stations in Alabama.
Prices in Alabam are 60.1 cents per gallon lower than this time last month, but remain 69.4 cents a gallon higher than this time last year.
“For the ninth week straight, gas prices have continued to fall, but the streak is at great risk of being broken this week with wholesale gasoline prices having bounced back up some 40 cents per gallon as oil prices have rebounded,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “That means the decline in average prices could wrap up soon, with some price increases possible as early as this week.”
Nationally, the price of diesel declined 14.8 cents over the past week, down to an average of $5.27 a gallon. The national average price of gasoline fell 9.9 cents per gallon over the past week, down to an average of $3.92 a gallon.
