Gas Prices Continue to Slide


The national average for a gallon of regular gas dropped another $.02 last week, making it six weeks in a row of consistent price drops.

The AAA fuel gauge reported the average price per gallon of regular gas to be $2.46, some 18 cents per gallon less than six weeks ago when Hurricane Harvey hit the coast of Texas.

The most significant savings have been seen in Texas and the Southeast where prices have fallen roughly 20 cents per gallon in the last three weeks alone.

A gallon of premium also dropped 2 cents to $2.99 and diesel dropped to $2.73.

It seems like the disparity between regular and premium fuel is more than normal right now, but AAA charts show the pricing difference to be on par with past pricing.

Either way, it’s a great time of year for a road trip and the less expensive fuel only helps!

Happy Motoring!
