Built on a large jump in gasoline supply, the national gas price average dropped seven cents on the week to land at $2.64. This is the lowest average price in the country since March.
“On the week, nearly half of all states saw gas price averages decrease by at least a nickel,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “While gasoline demand increased week-over-week, it wasn’t enough to stay on pace with the huge jump in gasoline stocks. Therefore, pump prices continue to decline across the country.”
Today’s national gas price average is 13-cents less than a month ago and 21-cents cheaper than a year ago.
