Fort Lauderdale, FL – The nation’s average price of gas fell another nickel per gallon during the past seven days, according to the weekly fuel price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A. report shows the cost of regular unleaded has fallen to $2.32 per gallon. That figure is nearly ten cents less, on average, that just two weeks ago, as retail prices relent amid a glut of oil worldwide.
Regionally, prices were down across the board, with declines led by the Midwest, where prices fell nearly seven cents per gallon. Prices were down the least in the Rocky Mountain states, as prices in that region were off by just under a penny per gallon.
Truckers got some good news, as diesel prices also declined on the week. Prices fell well above three cents per gallon to settle at $2.49. Like gasoline, prices for diesel fell in all regions.
Regional cost averages for both gasoline and diesel are listed below, ranked from highest to lowest price.
