Gas Price Update For December 28, 2015

Gas price trend for week of December 28, 2015Fort Lauderdale, FL – The price of gas dropped for most people across the country during the past week, according to the latest release from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Drivers across the midwest were hit with a price increase for the first time in over a month, as the cost of gas lurched upward by about three cents. Still, that region remains the second cheapest place in the country to fill up the tank. For all other survey regions, the price of gas was down on the week.
