Gas Prices Dropping

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Gasoline prices continue to fall as the long Christmas weekend approaches. Amerine Woodyard of the Energy Information Administration in Washington D.C. says the national average for a gallon of unleaded gasoline is now $2.37 per gallon.

That’s down 5.2 cents from a week ago. Pump prices were highest in the West Coast states at 3.11 a gallon, down 5.7 cents from a week ago. Prices were lowest in the Gulf Coast region at 2.03 a gallon, down 4.3 cents.

Closer to home, Gasbuddy reports Wyoming’s state average has dropped 5¢ from last week. The state average is now $2.69 per gallon of unleaded regular, with the lowest price – $2.30 a gallon – found in Laramie. Here in Jackson, the prices also continued their downward trend with the average of prices surveyed by Gasbuddy this week at $2.84 per gallon. That’s a decline of 9¢. Prices in the survey ranged from $2.74 to $3.09 a gallon.
