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.

For drivers in most regions, the price of gas is well below the national average, but the cost of gassing-up in California, and the higher prices across the broad west coast region, tend to drag the nationwide averages higher. Aside from the west coast survey district, only the central Atlantic states have a regional price average over $2.00 per gallon, as of the release of the January 11 survey data.
