Nationally, the average price of gas fell 7.6 cents per gallon, to an average of $3.67. That’s down 26.9 cents from this time last month but 52.3 cents higher than this time last year. The price of diesel went down 5.5 cents, to an average of $5.01 a gallon.
“We continue to see the national average price of gasoline decline, now for the 13th straight week,” said GasBuddy Head of Petroleum Analysis Patrick De Haan. “But, we’re seeing drastically different price behaviors from coast to coast, with some areas seeing noticeable increases while others are seeing decreases. For now, I believe the drop in prices will overpower the increases, leading to potentially another decline this week, but we’re in a very fragile time and certainly could see a broader move higher in the weeks ahead.”
