Area gas prices continue to drop

Posted: Updated:

As of Sunday, the price of a gallon of gas in the Birmingham area was averaging $3.22 per gallon.  That's a drop of more than two cents over the last week.  The national  average fell 3.2 cents per gallon to $3.46 according to gasoline price website BirminghamGasPrices.com.

When comparing prices, in the Birmingham area, from one year ago, the prices are virtually the same and there is almost a 33 cent difference from one month ago.

"The national average has again decreased in the last week, but the decreases are

beginning to slow down," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

"Wholesale gasoline prices rose strongly on Friday which could send prices higher in states with among the lowest prices in the United States.

The fuel tightness has also continued in NYCfor those in Sandy's wake, fuel availability remains difficult, and is the reason GasBuddy has implemented an emergency fuel availability service," DeHaan said.
