For the first time in four weeks the national gas price average has seen a weekly decline. At $2.76, the national gas price average is three cents less expensive than last Monday. On the week, all but eight states saw gas price averages push cheaper or remain stable. Today’s average is a dime more expensive than a month ago, but eight cents cheaper than a year ago.
“Gasoline stocks remain robust amid a recent dip in demand, which could be one reason we are seeing pump prices starting to roll back,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “It is too soon to know if this is a long-term trend, but it is certainly a welcome relief for motorists.”
