Weekly gas roundup: Alabama prices drop 3.8 cents
Gas prices in Alabama fell a paltry 3.8 cents a gallon over the past week, down to an average of $3.06 a gallon as of Monday, according to GasBuddy‘s survey of 3,348 gas stations in Alabama.
That’s 8.8 cents per gallon lower than this time last month and 21.8 cents per gallon lower than this time last year.
Nationally, prices remained unchanged at an average of $3.37 a gallon as of Monday. That’s 2.7 cents lower than this time last month but 14.5 cents higher than this time last year.
The national price of diesel fell 6.9 cents a gallon over the past week, down to an average of $4.45 a gallon.
“Motorists across many areas of the country have seen gas prices inching down for another week, while some states have moved higher. For diesel, the outlook remains bright with prices continuing to fall,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “Oil prices have softened over the last week, helping to limit any upside at the pump, with strong economic data leading to concern that the Fed will continue to use interest rates to slow the economy. This could weaken demand as we head into the peak summer driving season.”
