Gas Price Report For July 24, 2016

Gas price trend for week of July 24, 2017

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The nation’s average gas price pushed higher this week, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded went up over three cents to settle over $2.31.

Regionally, prices were up in nearly all locations, although curiously unchanged across the broad West Coast region, and even down when taking California out of the equation. Elsewhere, costs drove upward anywhere from just over a penny, as in the Rocky Mountains, to nearly a six-cent surge, as felt by drivers across the Lower Atlantic states.

Prices for diesel fuel also went up this week, but not by as much as their gasoline counterparts.  The U.S. average diesel prices are now $2.51 per gallon, after going up an average one-and-a-half cents per gallon this week, according to the E.I.A.

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

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.
