Average gasoline prices in Alabama fell 11.7 cents a gallon over the past week, down to an average of $2.87 a gallon as of Monday, according to GasBuddy‘s survey of 3,348 gas stations in Alabama.

Prices in Alabama are 40.4 cents lower than this time last month and 14.9 cents lower than this time last year.

Nationally, gas prices fell 14.4 cents over the past week, down to an average of $3.21 a gallon as of Monday.

The price of diesel fell 14.9 cents over the past week, down to an average of $4.91.

“Not only has the decline in gasoline prices lasted five straight weeks, with again every state seeing a weekly decline in its average, but average diesel prices have fallen in 49 states over the last week as well. The relief is saving Americans roughly $20 per fill-up compared to six months ago,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “On the previously hard-hit West Coast, average prices have fallen nearly $2 per gallon since October. Fifteen states now have average gasoline prices of $2.99 or less, with several more to join this week. We remain on schedule to see the national average gas price fall below $3 by Christmas.”
