Fuel prices increase 2nd consecutive week except in the Rocky Mountains
It’s a good time to be buying fuel in the Rocky Mountains these days. According to the US Energy Information Administration report today, fuel prices increased nationally $.08 per gallon on average, and as much as $.10 per gallon in the Central and Lower Atlantic regions. The only region where fuel prices declined was the Rocky Mountains, where fuel prices were $.02 lower than the previous week. The Rockies now have the lowest priced fuel in the nation, with an average fuel price for regular unleaded of $3.01 per gallon. The next lowest average fuel price is in the Gulf Coast region, where an average price for unleaded is $3.20. California has the highest average fuel price for unleaded at $3.70.
