Gas Price Report For September 10, 2018

Gas price trend for week of September 10, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The nation’s gas prices pushed higher this week, significantly in some regions, helping jostle the national price average by nearly a full penny, pushing the average cost for a gallon of regular unleaded to $2.83, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Prices were up in all regions, but prices moved at twice the pace of the national average across the Central Atlantic, and at more than twice the national average across the Gulf Coast. Prices are detailed in the E.I.A.’s weekly fuel price survey.

Diesel prices increased this week, following in the step of last week’s steep increase in prices; but, this week’s price increase was comparatively tame. The average price for a gallon of diesel, according to the E.I.A., went up little more than a half-penny per gallon, enough to push the rounded-average from $3.25 to $3.26.

This week’s average fuel prices for all regions are shown below, as gathered from www.eia.gov.
