Good gas news just keeps on coming

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - Average retail gasoline prices in Louisiana have fallen 6.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.38/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.0 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.58/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Louisiana during the past week, prices yesterday were 42.1 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 16.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 9.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 32.8 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

GasBuddy Senior Analyst Patrick DeHaan sees it this way, "Americans are spending $108 million less on gasoline every day than they were a year ago. Metropolitan Statistical Areas are lower today than a year ago. In all, 300 Metropolitan Statistical Areas saw cheaper first quarter prices for gasoline than in 2012, with two MSAs showing no statistically significant change. More expensive markets in 2013 included locations in Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania. The most expensive market in the country was the Honolulu area, but the outright price of $4.157 gal this year was just 3 cents a gallon above the 2012 number."
