Gas prices still not to pre-Harvey levels

Gas Prices Down Again at the Pump in Columbia

The price of gas reached an average of $2.73 per gallon after Hurricane Harvey in Rhode Island and $2.70 in MA.

The national average for a gallon of regular gas was $2.45, according to AAA, down 2 cents in the past week, 13 cents in the past month. It's 12 cents per gallon less than last month, and 15.2 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

The national average dropped 1.6 centers per gallon to $2.44 per gallon, GasBuddy reported.

AAA Northeast found in its weekly survey released Monday that self-serve, regular is averaging $2.58 per gallon.

The price of gasoline is down in both Rhode Island and MA after its post-hurricane spike last month.




For example, in northern Palm Beach County, nine stations were all pricing their gas above $2.60, including Texaco on USA 1 in Tequesta, north of Jupiter Inlet, which was selling at $2.79 Monday.

"The national average gas price is lower for the sixth straight week, the longest such decline since the summer of 2016", said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. Surprisingly, the relatively low prices are about 10 percent higher than a year ago.

"The national average has now remained under $3 per gallon for almost 3 years".

Experts say gas prices in some parts of the country like the Midwest, are higher due to refineries undergoing seasonal maintenance.

Gas prices are falling across the country. GasBuddy is available on all mobile platforms.
