Savannah gas prices take slight dip


The average retail gasoline prices in Savannah have fallen 2.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.29 per gallon Sunday, according to gasoline price website

This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.3 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.43 per gallon.

Including the change in gas prices in Savannah during the past week, prices on Sunday were 15.0 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 9.0 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. 

"With Labor Day right around the corner, most Americans will be seeing the lowest prices of the summer," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick Dehaan. "And the good news doesn't end there, the national average is at its lowest levels for this time of year since 2010, when prices averaged $2.65 per gallon nationally during Labor Day weekend. While most Americans won't have access to sub-$3 prices, a few hundred gas stations, mainly in the southern U.S., are offering gasoline under $3/gallon today. And for those motorists in areas where gas prices tend to be high: just 1.5% of gas stations in the U.S. are selling for more than $4/gallon, so even California is in on the party at the pump," Dehaan said.

Meanwhile, the national average has decreased 10.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 10.5 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.
