Heading lower: Gas prices fall another 14 cents
Average gas prices in Alabama have fallen 14 cents per gallon over the past week, down to an average of $3.77 as of Sunday.
Prices in Alabama are 65.2 cents lower than a month ago, but remain 93.1 cents higher than this time last year, according to GasBuddy‘s survey of 3,358 gas stations in Alabama.
Nationally, the price of diesel fell 14.8 cents, down to an average of $5.27 a gallon, and the price of gas fell 15.9 cents down to an average of $4.17 a gallon.
“We continue to see average gas prices falling in every state, with the national average down for the seventh straight week. Even better, nearly 20 states have also seen their average decline to $3.99 or less, with over 70,000 stations now at that level or below,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “For now, Americans are seeing prices nearly 90 cents lower than their mid-June peak and are spending close to $330 million less on gasoline every day as a result. As long as oil prices hold at these levels or lower, we’ll see another decline in most areas this week.”
