Weekly gas roundup: Prices fall 4 cents in Alabama
The average price for a gallon of gas in Alabama fell 4 cents over the past week, down to an average of $3.10 a gallon, according to GasBuddy‘s survey of 3,348 gas stations in Alabama.
That’s 0.9 cents per gallon lower than this time last month and $1.43 a gallon lower than this time last year.
Nationally, prices fell 3.9 cents, down to an average of $3.51 a gallon. That’s 1.7 cents down from this time last month and $1.34 down from this time last year.
Diesel prices nationally fell 3.4 cents a gallon over the past week, to an average of $3.88 a gallon.
“While the national average drifted lower last week as oil prices cooled off, the drop may be temporary,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “How long any rise in gas prices lasts is up in the air, but I do not yet believe motorists need to be worried. Any rise in average prices should be fairly small, and we’re still extremely unlikely to make a run at record prices anytime soon.”
