Gas Prices Dip Slightly According To Weekly Survey
The price of gas across the United States dropped by an average of one penny per gallon last week, according to the weekly gas price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The weekly E.I.A. report shows the bulk of Americans are paying anywhere from 2¢ to 5¢ less per gallon, but pricing increases across the Lower Atlantic states and the Rocky Mountain survey region kept the broader U.S. price average from dropping further.
California drivers enjoyed a significant price drop, which helped bring the West Coast price average down about a nickel per gallon to an even $3.00. The lowest gas prices in the country are currently found in Texas and along the Gulf Coast, where the average regional price is just under $2.19 per gallon.
