Gas prices sink nearly 5 cents in Alabama

Gas Prices Rising

Gas prices in Alabama fell nearly 5 cents a gallon over the past week.

Prices averaged $3.21 a gallon as of Monday and fell 4.9 cents, according to GasBuddy‘s survey of 3,348 gas stations in Alabama.

That’s 24.9 cents a gallon lower than this time last month, but 35.9 cents a gallon higher than this time last year.

Nationally, the price fell 3.9 cents a gallon, down to an average of $3.64. The price of diesel declined 7 cents, down to an average of $4.93 a gallon.

“With a 14th consecutive weekly decline, the national average price of gasoline has now surpassed 2018’s record decline, seeing its longest downward streak since 2015,” said GasBuddy Petroleum Analysis Head Patrick De Haan. “However, this week could change the downward trend. While gasoline could nudge higher, diesel prices should continue to ease after a much-needed jump in inventories last week.”

According to GasBuddy’s price reports:

  • Alabama’s cheapest gas station was $2.82 a gallon as of Sunday
  • Alabama’s priciest gas station was $4.29 a gallon as of Sunday

Around Tuscaloosa, you can get gas as low as $2.88. Check out where right here.
