Gas Price Report For November 20, 2017

Gas price trend for week of November 20, 2017

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, the nation’s average fuel prices relented in their recent spate of price hikes. The latest report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration shows the national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded has fallen about two cents to $2.57. The decline marks the first time in November that drivers have received any good news, where it concerns gas prices.

Fuel prices were down across nearly all of the E.I.A.’s survey districts, including the West Coast, where average prices slipped over the $3.00 mark earlier this month. Prices were flat across the bulk of the Rocky Mountains.

Truckers got mixed news from this week’s E.I.A. report, however, as the national average was flat. Region by region, prices were down about a penny across the West Coast, Midwest and Gulf Coast; however, prices surged along the Lower Atlantic by nearly four cents, while the broad East Coast saw diesel prices up by over a penny per gallon. According to the E.I.A., the nation’s average cost for a gallon of diesel is now about $2.91.

Fuel prices for all regions are shown below, as gathered from www.eia.gov.
