Gas price trend for week of March 20, 2017

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The price of gas remained relatively stable across the United States during the past week, according to the latest release from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Prices in all regions either remained the same or within a penny of last week’s figures, according to the regular E.I.A. price survey. Nationally, the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas remains $2.32.
