Gas Price Update For October 17, 2016

Gas price trend for week of October 17, 2016

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The price of gas finally tipped downward this week, but only just.

The cost of fuel, nationwide, dropped about a penny and a half to settle at $2.26, according to the weekly fuel price survey by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A. report shows a near-seven cent decline in prices across the Midwest is largely responsible for the pull on the national average. Elsewhere, prices were either flat or up about a penny. Prices across the Rocky Mountain states were up nearly three cents.
