Weekly gas roundup: Prices fall 4.4 cents in Alabama
Average gas prices in Alabama fell 4.4 cents a gallon over the past week, down to an average of $3.38 a gallon as of Monday, according to GasBuddy‘s survey of 3,348 gas stations in Alabama.

Nationally, prices fell 4 cents a gallon over the past week, down to an average of $3.78 a gallon. That’s 5.8 cents higher than this time last month and 3.5 cents lower than this time last year.
The national average price of diesel rose 3.3 cents over the past week, up to an average of $4.33 a gallon.
“For the first time in weeks, the national average price of gasoline has fallen over the last week as the wholesale price of gasoline had been under seasonal pressure as we near the end of the summer driving season,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “While GasBuddy is closely monitoring Florida for challenges related to Idalia and is prepared to activate the fuel availability tracker, the rest of the nation could see gas price declines reversing pending the outcome of refinery issues that continue to put upward pressure on wholesale gasoline prices.”
