AAA: Gas prices drop to lowest level of year


Continuing a remarkable trend, pump prices in the Pittsburgh region dropped another two cents a gallon in the last week to $2.60 on Monday, according to GasBuddy's survey of more than 700 stations in southwestern Pennsylvania.

The auto club is predicting that prices should continue declining this week and set a new 2017 low.

Each spring, average USA gasoline prices rise 35 cents to 75 cents, usually from February to May, according to GasBuddy's historical figures.

In Paducah, prices ranged from $1.94 to $2.19. A GasBuddy petroleum analyst said with hurricane season approaching, customers can expect one more week of low prices before they rise again.

A year ago at this time, the average price of a gallon of regular in Rhode Island was at the same price.

Florida ranked #5 among states with the biggest weekly decline.

Including the change in gas prices in San Bernardino during the past week, prices yesterday were 6.8 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 7.0 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The state average is on a 16-day streak of declines, falling since June 3, AAA said. "Markets moved lower after another round of supply data showing high US and global refinery production".

Fort Collins- $2.23/g, down 3.3 cents per gallon from last week's $2.27/g.

Thinking about that long-awaited summer road trip? That's 12.4 cents less than a week ago. That is down about a nickel compared with the prices a week ago and at this time past year.

Though global oil price benchmark rose to $56 a barrel earlier in April, it has cooled off in May and June. Once that happens, the national average would be the lowest since December 2016.

Meteorologists are watching two storms in the Atlantic Basin, either of which have the potential to push fuel prices higher this week.

AAA found self-serve, regular selling for as low as $2.11 and as high as $2.46 per gallon.
