While gasoline prices nationally are seeing a marked decline, the average price of that precious liquid in Jackson Hole is stubbornly hanging on excess of $3.84 per gallon of unleaded regular. According to AAA Auto Club’s daily Fuel Gauge Report, the national average is now $3.54-point-3 per gallon of unleaded regular with Wyoming’s average price now computed to be $3.63-point-5 per gallon. Meanwhile, Teton Valley Idaho averaged 3.85-point-7 which is about 5½¢ per gallon more than that state’s average. Nationally, AAA anticipates gasoline prices should continue to drop through Election Day and continue their downward trend through the end of the year. There is no indication why prices are not responding to declines seen elsewhere in the nation including the west coast even though west coast prices continue to be the highest nationally.
