After registering a relatively small increase of 6.6 cents per gallon since the middle of last month, the nationwide average price of self-service regular gasoline has stalled just more than $2.30 cents per gallon, according to AAA's daily, on-line Fuel Gauge Report.
Locally, gas prices have stalled out around $2.21 per gallon of regular unleaded.
The national average price was $2.28 per gallon one month ago and is $2.32 per gallon today.
According to AAA, the relative stability of recent prices for both oil and gasoline – and the continued absence of any dramatic news affecting oil or gasoline supplies – is an indicator the cost of fuel should remain fairly stable over the next few weeks.
One year ago the price of self-serve regular gasoline was $2.21 per gallon, AAA said.
AAA's fuel price survey shows Hawaii has the highest average gas price in the nation at $2.84 per gallon. Oregon and Washington state have the next highest average prices; at $2.68 and $2.66 per gallon, respectively.
Missouri has the lowest state-wide average gasoline price in the nation at $2.13 per gallon. Oklahoma has the next lowest price at $2.14 per gallon.
Nationwide, the price of self-serve, mid-grade gasoline averages $2.47 per gallon, an increase from $2.42 per gallon last month, and up from $2.35 one year ago.
Self-serve premium averages $2.55 per gallon nationwide; up from $2.50 one month ago. Premium averaged $2.44 per gallon at this time last year.
AAA's Fuel Gauge Report is based on data from Oil Price Information Service, the nation's most comprehensive source of petroleum pricing information. AAA purchases the data and makes it available free on the Internet as a public service. Average daily prices for the nation, all 50 states and more than 250 localities are available for all grades of gasoline, making the site the most current and complete public source of fuel price information.
As the nation's largest motoring and leisure travel organization, AAA provides more than 49 million members with travel, insurance, financial and automotive-related services. Since its founding in 1902, the not-for-profit, fully tax paying AAA has been a leader and advocate for the safety and security of all travelers.
