Gas prices in town as of this taping average out to be about $2.20 a gallon. While that may seem high compared to a couple weeks ago, its still over a dollar less per gallon than this time last year, and those prices are expected to stay down.
“We’re going to see the gas prices remain low, with some price fluctuations here and there. But certainly in the near term they will remain low,” said AAA Spokesperson, Beth Moser.
Some of the things keeping them low? The price of crude oil has dropped, domestic oil production is up, and the winter-blend of gas currently in production is typically the cheapest.
