Gas price trend for week of July 31, 2017

Prices were up in all regions this week, and all survey districts ended up for the month, somewhat substantially for the Midwest and Lower Atlantic states, which had monthly gains of 14¢ and 13¢, respectively. The broad West Coast and California – ironically, where prices are highest – had the lowest price increases of the month, only about 2¢.

Diesel fuel prices also went up this week. Once again, prices were not up as much as with gasoline, but truckers are paying another two-and-a-half cents per gallon for fuel, versus last week, according to the E.I.A. Nationally, prices have settled at $2.53 per gallon, though range from as little as $2.36 on the Gulf Coast to as much as $2.91 in California.

Gas Price Report For July 17, 2017

Gas price trend for week of July 17, 2017

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The nation’s average gas price retreated this week, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded stands at about $2.28, down about two cents on the week. The decline comes after a sudden uptick in prices last week, which had followed four weeks of steady price dips.

Region-by-region, prices were down across the board. Last week’s shocking price increase in the Midwest was offset by a decline this week of over four cents per gallon. That contributed most to the decline in the national price average.

Prices for diesel fuel did not follow the trend of its petroleum counterpart this week, to the dismay of truckers. The U.S. average diesel prices are now $2.49 per gallon, after going up another penny per gallon, on average, this week, the E.I.A. reported.

Gas Price Report For July 10, 2017

Gas price trend for week of July 10, 2017Fort Lauderdale, FL – After four straight price declines, the nation’s average fuel costs have gone up, according to the weekly fuel price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A. weekly report shows the nation’s average gas price went up nearly four cents per gallon to start the week at $2.30.

The region-by-region tally was not quite as bad, however, as most drivers endured only slight increases in fuel prices. It was a stunning nine-cent increase in gas prices across the Midwest that contributed the most to the increase in the national price average. Prices across New England and Rocky Mountain states actually declined, albeit only slightly.

Last week’s reversal of fortune for truckers continued into this week, as diesel prices edged up another penny per gallon. U.S. average diesel prices are now $2.48 per gallon, the E.I.A. reported this week.

Regional cost averages for both gasoline and diesel are listed below, ranked from highest to lowest price.
