Gas Price Report For November 28, 2016

Gas price trend for week of November 28, 2016

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The price of gas took another dip this week, but unless you live in one of the states covered with Rocky Mountains, you may not notice. According to the weekly release from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average price of regular unleaded fell only a tenth of a penny per gallon during the week. The average price now stands at $2.15 per gallon, a price that is down a penny from last week’s average, but only due to rounding. Millions of drivers across the Midwest are paying nearly three cents per gallon more than last week, a common happenstance in a region besieged by pricing volatility.

The cost of diesel declined again this week, but no more noticeably than regular fuels, as prices only went down a tenth of a penny, on average, according to the E.I.A. The E.I.A. reports the national average cost of diesel is remains at $2.42 per gallon.
