Gas Price Update For January 11, 2016

Gas price trend for week of January 11, 2016Fort Lauderdale, FL – The cost of filling up the tank continued to drop during the past week, with the official U.S. price average falling below the critical $2.00 threshold. According to the Energy Information Administration, the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded dipped over three cents on the week to settle at $1.996 per gallon.

Prices by region are as follows, ranked highest to lowest:

$2.630: PADD 5 WEST COAST (INCL. CA)

Gas Price Update For January 4, 2016

Gas price trend for week of January 4, 2016Fort Lauderdale, FL – The price of gas fell for most drivers across the U.S. during the New Year’s holiday, but continuing price increases in California weighed down the national averages, preventing the U.S. weekly price index from changing on the week. That means that, at least technically, the average driver in the United States is paying $2.03 for a gallon of regular unleaded, according to the Energy Information Administration.
