Gas Price Report For October 16, 2017

Las Vegas – The nation’s average gas price took another dip during the past week, according to the latest pricing survey released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A. reports the average cost for a gallon of regular unleaded gas is now $2.49, the first time the national average has been under $2.50 since Hurricane Harvey struck Texas in August.

Meanwhile, the cost of diesel went the other direction this week, causing some grief for truckers. The nation’s average cost for diesel fuel rose about a penny per gallon during the past week to $2.79, according to the E.I.A.
