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.

Gas Price Report For August 27, 2018

Gas price trend for week of August 27, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Gas prices ticked up during the past week, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, in large part due to sharp rises in costs across the Rocky Mountain states and east into the Midwest. As a result, the nation’s average gas price ticked up by about a half penny per gallon to settle near $2.83 per gallon this week.

The E.I.A. fuel price survey, generally released every Monday, shows a three-cent price increase across the Rockies and the Midwest survey regions. Those increases dragged the U.S. average gas price higher, despite one and two-cent price declines across the entire East Coast and Lower Atlantic regions.  

The cost of diesel moved upward by about two cents per gallon, according to the E.I.A. That jump pushed the average price of diesel to about 3.23 per gallon this week.

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

Gas Price Report For August 6, 2018

Gas price trend for week of August 6, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Gas prices inched their way upward during the past week, but many drivers may not notice much change in the price at the pump. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded went up less than a penny per gallon, and the average U.S. gas price remains the same at about $2.85 per gallon.

Prices were fairly flat in many regions. However, drivers on the East Coast and in the Rocky Mountains were hit with about a penny per gallon price hike, and drivers across the Lower Atlantic region paid about two cents extra at  the pump this week, according to the E.I.A. Prices dipped by about a penny per gallon on the West Coast.

The cost of diesel was primarily flat for truckers in most regions, although the E.I.A. reported that prices fell marginally in nearly every region. The price movement was hardly enough to change the national average cost of a gallon of diesel, which remains about $3.23.

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