Gas Price Report For September 25, 2017

Another Week, And Another Nickel Comes Off The Price Of Gas

Gas price trend for week of September 25, 2017

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The cost of gas fell another nickel on the week, according to the latest fuel price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. In fact, the E.I.A. report shows the cost of gas declined by exactly the same amount for the second consecutive week, 5.1¢ per gallon, a bit of an oddity in the weekly survey. Nonetheless, the price decline was good news for the nation’s drivers, now paying an average of $2.58 per gallon for regular unleaded.

Prices fell in all regions this week, though declines were varied, from as little as about two cents across the Rockies and the far West Coast, to as must as eight cents per gallon, on average, across the Midwest region. For the second time in as many weeks, that region enjoyed the lowest average fuel price in the nation, a position usually held by the Gulf Coast.

The Gulf Coast was the only region where diesel fuel prices declined noticeably. The E.I.A.’s district-by-district survey of fuel costs shows the cost of an average gallon of diesel remained static this week, holding at $2.79 per gallon. Prices in the Gulf region declined two cents, however, while prices across the Rockies went up about two cents per gallon.

Regional cost averages for both gasoline and diesel are listed below, showing the current week and previous week. Prices are ranked from highest to lowest price.

Gas Price Report For September 18, 2017

Gas Prices Fall Over Five Cents On The Week

Gas price trend for week of September 18, 2017

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The cost of gas fell over a nickel per gallon during the past week, according to the latest pricing survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A. report offers up some relief for drivers, who have been shocked in recent weeks by intense price increases, which resulted from refinery shutdowns in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. The average price, nationwide, for a gallon of regular unleaded fell to about $2.63 this week, down from nearly $2.69 last week.

Prices fell in all regions this week, including the Lower Atlantic states, which include the states of Florida and Georgia. Despite a spike in consumer demand as the result of Hurricane Irma, the price in Lower Atlantic fell nearly four cents per gallon. The biggest price decline was found in the Midwest, known for pricing volatility. From Chicago to Cleveland, the cost of gas plunged an average of 9.5¢ per gallon across the region, the E.I.A. reported this week. That decline gives the Midwest the distinction of having the lowest average fuel prices among the survey districts, a position usually held by the Gulf Coast.

Diesel fuel prices declined, but in moderation, compared to the price of regular gas. The average cost of a gallon of diesel is now about $2.79 per gallon, according to the E.I.A. survey.

Regional cost averages for both gasoline and diesel are listed below, showing the current week and previous week. Prices are ranked from highest to lowest price.

Gas Price Update For September 11, 2017

Report delayed to September 12, 2017 due to compulsory evacuations as a result of Hurricane Irma. We are reporting this week from north Georgia.

Gas Prices Nudge Higher As Hurricane Irma Tears Into Florida, Georgia

Gas price trend for week of September 11, 2017

Oakwood, GA – The cost of driving increased again during the past week, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A.’s weekly price survey shows the cost of fuel increased another penny per gallon to nearly $2.69 per gallon of regular unleaded. The weekly price increase was relatively tame, however, compared with the shocking price hikes experienced only a week earlier, when Hurricane Harvey forced the closure of refineries across Texas and Louisiana.

Prices went up, once again, in all regions, and it was unclear what impact the landfall of Hurricane Irma on Florida may have on the cost of gas prices in the Lower Atlantic region, which will likely be reflected in next week’s pricing survey. Meanwhile, prices across the Lower Atlantic region, like most regions, were up about a half cent per gallon. Prices across the West Coast and New England were up two cents per gallon, on average, dragging the nation’s averages higher this week.

Diesel fuel prices also took another hit this week, rising over four cents per gallon. The average cost of a gallon of diesel is now over $2.80, while prices in some regions, particularly the West Coast, are now well in excess of $3.00.

Regional cost averages for both gasoline and diesel are listed below, showing the current week and previous week. Prices are ranked from highest to lowest price.

Gas Prices Surge As Hurricane Harvey Shutters Refineries In Texas

Gas price trend for week of September 4, 2017

Fort Lauderdale – The 2017 hurricane season has taken its toll on fuel prices nationwide, with gas prices making steep gains in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. The storm resulting in a number of refineries shutting down across Texas and into Louisiana, choking the nation’s fuel supply and driving the national average price up by 28¢ per gallon. The nation’s average gas price, which was $2.40 last week, lurched upward to $2.68 for a gallon of regular unleaded. The figures are detailed in a weekly fuel price survey compiled by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Every region took a hit, from the Gulf Coast, the site of Harvey’s impact, all the way to New England, where prices rose 35¢ and 36¢, respectively. Prices in the Lower Atlantic states, now potentially threatened by Hurricane Irma, rose by nearly 41¢ per gallon.

The lowest price increases were seen in areas where prices were already the highest in the nation, notably the West Coast and the Rocky Mountains. But these regions also have more direct access to other fuel sources, and prices were only up between 11 and 14 cents per gallon, respectively. Still, the price increases were substantial enough that the West Coast region now has an official gas price above the $3.00 mark.

Diesel fuel prices pinched at the wallets of truckers, too, but not nearly as much. Nationwide, the cost of diesel rose about 15¢ per gallon to $2.76.

Regional cost averages for both gasoline and diesel are listed below, showing the current week and previous week. Prices are ranked from highest to lowest price.

Gas Price Report For August 14, 2017

Austin, TX – The price of gas continued to rise through the past week, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The cost of a gallon of regular unleaded pushed upward over a half penny this week, by far the lowest increase in recent weeks, and barely enough to budge the national average very much. As a result, the cost of a gallon of regular unleaded will still set you back only about $2.38.

Prices did not go up in all regions this week, however. The E.I.A.’s weekly pricing survey shows the cost of fuels along the Eastern seaboard, and down to the Gulf Coast, fell anywhere from a penny to nearly two cents per gallon. But prices across the West Coast jumped over two cents per gallon, and coupled with a nearly 4¢ surge in prices across the Rocky Mountain states, the national price average was kept from what would have been a mild decline. A 1.5¢ increase in prices across the heavily-populated Midwest also helped hold the national averages from a price decline.

This week’s movement in the price of diesel did not do any favors for truckers, as the cost of fuel rose nearly two cents. The national average price of a gallon of diesel is now $2.60 per gallon. As with gasoline, prices across the West Coast and Rocky Mountain states surged, pushing the national average higher. In the Midwest, prices jumped nearly three cents, on average, while prices were up about a penny or slightly more than a penny along the East Coast. Prices were flat in the Gulf Coast region.

Once again, prices were up in all regions this week, and while some price jumps were not as high was last week, the Gulf Coast suffered a seven-cent leap in prices.
