Gas Price Report For September 25, 2017

Another Week, And Another Nickel Comes Off The Price Of Gas

Gas price trend for week of September 25, 2017

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The cost of gas fell another nickel on the week, according to the latest fuel price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. In fact, the E.I.A. report shows the cost of gas declined by exactly the same amount for the second consecutive week, 5.1ยข per gallon, a bit of an oddity in the weekly survey. Nonetheless, the price decline was good news for the nation’s drivers, now paying an average of $2.58 per gallon for regular unleaded.

Prices fell in all regions this week, though declines were varied, from as little as about two cents across the Rockies and the far West Coast, to as must as eight cents per gallon, on average, across the Midwest region. For the second time in as many weeks, that region enjoyed the lowest average fuel price in the nation, a position usually held by the Gulf Coast.

The Gulf Coast was the only region where diesel fuel prices declined noticeably. The E.I.A.’s district-by-district survey of fuel costs shows the cost of an average gallon of diesel remained static this week, holding at $2.79 per gallon. Prices in the Gulf region declined two cents, however, while prices across the Rockies went up about two cents per gallon.

Regional cost averages for both gasoline and diesel are listed below, showing the current week and previous week. Prices are ranked from highest to lowest price.
