West U Gas Prices at Lowest Mark Since Early February
Average retail gasoline prices in the West U area have fallen an additional 7.8 cents in the past week, averaging $3.22 per gallon as of yesterday.
This local price compares with the national average that has fallen 7.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.45, according to gasoline price website HoustonGasPrices.com.
Senior petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan noted the falling prices have even resulted in gas prices under $3 in some areas.
“The national average has now dropped to its lowest level since Feb. 4,” DeHaan said. “Gasoline can be found as cheap as $2.73 per gallon today in Taylors, SC. While this certainly isn’t going to be the price of every station, a majority of gasoline outlets are featuring prices that have come down significantly in the last month,”
Including the change in gas prices in West U during the past week, prices yesterday were 21.1 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 28.0 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
The national average has decreased 21.7 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 14.0 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
