Gas prices dropping in Vt.Staff Report | December 11,2012STAFF REPORT
Average gasoline prices in Vermont fell 4.1 cents a gallon in the past week, averaging $3.59 a gallon, according to VermontGasPrices.com. But that's still 25 cents a gallon higher than the national average of $3.34 a gallon.
The national average price fell 4.8 cents a gallon in the last week.
The average price in Vermont on Sunday was 12.3 cents a gallon lower than a month ago but 20.9 cents a gallon higher than the same day a year ago.
Nationwide, the average price has fallen 12.2 cents a gallon during the last month. A year ago, the national average price was 5.5 cents a gallon higher.
"The national average has continued to see a steady decline over the last week, and that trend will likely continue through this week at the very least," said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst. "Last week, the Energy Information Administration reported one of the largest single week increases in gasoline inventories in my recent memory, which will likely contribute downward pressure to wholesale gasoline prices in the days and perhaps weeks ahead."
GasBuddy operates VermontGasPrices.com and more than 250 websites that track gasoline prices at over 140,000 gasoline stations in the United States and Canada.MORE IN This Just InRutland's mystery water leak has been found and fixed, but how it happened remains a mystery, as... Full Story
