Gas price trend for week of March 26, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Driving keeps getting more expensive, as the data reflect in the latest gas price survey, from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The weekly price report shows the cost of an average gallon of regular unleaded surged five cents on the week, pushing to about $2.65. Prices shot higher in all regions.

The lowest price increases were seen across the Midwest, according to the report, where drivers experienced a two cent increase in gas prices. For the unlucky drivers along the Gulf Coast, the price of gas surged nearly eight cents per gallon, according to the E.I.A., jumping from $2.30 last week to $2.38 this week. Prices along the Gulf remain the cheapest in the United States, according to the report.

The news was little better for truckers. Prices jumped about four cents per gallon, on average, for diesel, to settle over the $3.00 mark for the first time in weeks. The national average price of diesel is now $3.01, according to the E.I.A.

Gas Price Report For March 19, 2018

Gas price trend for week of March 19, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The cost of the nation’s fuel supply spiked during the past week, driven by intense price hikes across three key regions, according to this week’s fuel price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded shot up by nearly four cents, settling at just under $2.60.

Prices shot significantly higher across the Lower Atlantic, the Midwest and the West Coast, according to the E.I.A. The survey report shows each region endured average price increases between five and six cents per gallon. Most other regions had price hikes of between two and four cents per gallon. Only the Central Atlantic states were spared a price increase, according to the survey report.

The news was much better for truckers, although prices were mostly flat in most regions. In fact, the U.S. average cost for diesel remained flat on the week, declining just about four-tenths of a penny per gallon. That was enough to shift the national average from $2.98 to $2.97, but the move is more academic than practical for most drivers. Still, haulers operating across the Central Atlantic enjoyed a fair dip in prices this week, according to the E.I.A.

Gas Price Report For March 12, 2018

Gas price trend for week of March 12, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The average cost of gas went down for many drivers across the United States, according to this week’s gas price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. However, price surges across some regions kept the national price average in check, holding the figure to about $2.56 per gallon.

Drivers saw bigger price dips across the Lower Atlantic and broader East Coast, according to this week’s price survey. Prices fell nearly four cents across the Lower Atlantic and about three cents across the East Coast. A sudden uptick in prices hit drivers in California, while a smaller hike struck across the general West Coast region.

Truckers got better news across all regions, with this week’s E.I.A. survey. Aside from California, where prices were flat this week, prices declined in all regions, according to the report. The average cost of diesel is now about $2.98 per gallon, the second consecutive week the fuel has cost less than $3.00.

Gas Price Update For March 5, 2018

Gas price trend for week of March 5, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – After three weeks of price declines, drivers were hit with an increase in costs at the pump this week, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A.’s weekly fuel price survey shows the average cost of gas for Americas’ drivers went up by over a penny per gallon. The nation’s average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is now $2.56, according to the weekly report.

Price declines of identical amounts were felt in the New England states, as well as in the Central Atlantic and Rocky Mountain regions, the E.I.A. reported. But price increases across the Midwest, the Gulf Coast, and the Lower Atlantic states weighed heavily on the nation’s price averages this week.

Truckers kept getting a break in prices, though, bucking the gasoline trend this week, the E.I.A. reported. The survey report shows the average cost of diesel dipped by well over a penny per gallon to settle below $3.00 for the first time since the beginning of 2018. Average diesel prices, nationwide, are $2.99 per gallon, according to the E.I.A.

Gas Price Report For February 12, 2018

Gas price trend for week of February 12, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – After weeks of unrelenting increases, the price of gas finally gave some ground this week, according to the latest fuel-price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A. report shows the nation’s average gas price dropped three cents during the week, the first time prices have gone down since just before the Christmas holiday. The nation’s average gas price now stands about about $2.61 per gallon.

The price drop did not hit every region. New England drivers and those across the West Coast, sans California, had a bump in prices. All other regions enjoyed a price decline, led by the Midwest, where prices plunged over seven cents per gallon, according to the E.I.A.

Truckers got a decent break in prices at the pump this week, by the survey numbers. The cost of diesel dropped, on average, just over two cents per gallon this week to settle at $3.06.

Fuel prices for all regions are shown below, as gathered from www.eia.gov.

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The rate of price increases at the gas pump returned to its former, frenetic pace during the past week, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Gas Price Report For January 22, 2018

Gas price trend for week of January 22, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The nation’s gas prices continued rising during the past week, but the spate of weekly increases hit its lowest level in weeks, according to the latest release from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A.’s weekly gas price survey shows the pace of increases, at least at the national level, was held to just a penny per gallon, bringing the cost of regular unleaded to $2.57.

The Midwest was the only region to enjoy a price decline this week, but that was only to give back about half of last-week’s heart-stopping eight-cent price increase. Elsewhere, prices were up anywhere from a penny per gallon, as across the West Coast, to over a nickel per gallon across the Lower Atlantic states.

Truck drivers got little break in prices this week, by the numbers in the E.I.A. report, but not all regions enjoyed a decline in fuel prices. Nonetheless, the nation’s average diesel price held steady at $3.03 per gallon, with price declines of one to two cents from the Gulf Coast to the West Coast. Trucking across the Rocky Mountains got three cents cheaper, per gallon, on the week.

Fuel prices for all regions are shown below, as gathered from www.eia.gov.
