Gas Price Update For September 26, 2016

Gas price trend for week of September 26, 2016Fort Lauderdale, FL – The price of gas tipped up for people living across the East Coast and through the Lower Atlantic states during the past week, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. However, price declines across the Midwest and into the Rocky Mountain states kept the broader U.S. gas price average in check this week. The average price of a gallon of gas is reported this week, according to the E.I.A., as $2.22, down a penny from last week. That figure is skewed slightly due to rounding, as the price decline was so small that the drop was, technically, zero.

The cost of diesel fell also this week, but with greater certitude of figures. The weekly E.I.A. price survey shows the average price of a gallon of diesel fell nearly a penny to $2.38 per gallon.
