The midwest was not far behind, with gas costing just $1.88 per gallon. California and the west coast had the highest prices, with the cost of regular unleaded going for $2.69 and $2.55, respectively. Without California’s enormous economic influence added to the calculation, west coast gas averages only $2.31 per gallon.

Gas Price Update For November 23, 2015

Gas price trend for week of November 23, 2015Fort Lauderdale, FL – The price of gas fell precipitously during the past week, shedding nine cents per gallon, on average, for drivers across the United States. Prices came down in all regions, according to the regular update from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, which reports this week the average price, nationwide, has fallen to $2.09. The price declines have been lead by significant reductions across two key regions: the gulf coast and the midwest, both of which now share the numbers one and two spots, respectively, for regions with the country’s cheapest gas.

However, the cost of filling the tank remained nearly the same for most drivers across the New England and central Atlantic regions. The price of fuel only came down two cents across New England and four cents across the central Atlantic. California continues to have the highest gas prices in the country, with the cost of regular unleaded setting one back $2.72 per gallon.

Gas price trend for week of November 9, 2015Fort Lauderdale, FL
 – U.S. gas prices moved slightly higher during the past week, led largely by strong price gains in key regions. The average U.S. gas price nudged higher by about two cents, according to the latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. However, in regions where the price did increase, the increases were typically much higher than a couple cents.

With the golden state added to the mix, prices only slipped up by two cents. The lowest prices were still to be found on the gulf coast, but prices in that survey district, too, jumped during the past week, climbing almost six cents per gallon.t
