Gas prices being wishy-washy for now

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - The average price for a gallon of gas here in Louisiana dipped a couple of pennies over the past week. For the week, we were down by 2¢. This puts us 12.9¢ higher than we were a month ago and 8.7¢ a gallon lower than this time last month.

Nationally, meanwhile, prices crept up .7¢ a gallon to $3.26 a gallon, a jump of .9¢ a gallon over the past week leaving it at $3.26 a gallon, on average, as of this morning.

Patrick DeHaan, the Sr. Petroleum Analyst for GasBuddy, sees it this way, "While gasoline prices have seemingly remained virtually unchanged in many areas across the U.S. in the last week, that has meant that some areas are still seeing prices remain much lower than a year ago. Gasoline prices in the Rockies generally remain under their year ago levels, with the lowest price in the country in Laramie, Wyoming, where gasoline has plunged to $2.35 a gallon. The national average now lags prices one year ago by 9-cents per gallon, which is a more optimistic start to the year than I would have expected."
