Despite gasoline demand reaching summer-like levels as we head into November, the national gas price average held steady on the week at $2.60.
“Gas prices continue to fluctuate across the country, though on the week the majority of states saw prices only increase or decrease by one or two cents,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “The largest volatility at the pump continues to be seen in the West Coast & Rockies states along with a handful of states in the Great Lakes and Central region.” Motorists in the Northeast states continue to see the lowest pump price volatility in the nation with changes of just one to two pennies.
Today’s average is six cents cheaper than last month and 16-cents cheaper than last year at this time.
