CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) - Retail gas prices plunged an average of 23 cents nationwide in the past two weeks, marking a return to pre-Hurricane Katrina levels, according to a survey.
The weighted average price for all three grades declined to $2.45 a gallon on Friday, said Trilby Lundberg, who publishes the semimonthly Lundberg Survey of 7,000 gas stations around the country.
Self-serve regular averaged $2.43 a gallon nationwide. The price for midgrade was $2.53, while premium-grade hit $2.63.
The average pump price for all three grades on Aug. 29, the day Katrina made landfall on the Gulf Coast, was $2.65, according to the survey.
The lowest average price in the nation for regular unleaded among the stations surveyed was $2.06 a gallon in Tulsa, Okla. The highest was $2.74 in Miami
Should be big MSM news....NOT.
I feel left out....the cheapest between Palm Desert and Indio (my area in So. California) is $2.79
Prices are around a dime less than those averages, here in Atlanta. Prices really spiked here, due to Katrina.
$2.05 in NE Ohio yesterday.
I was just in the area about 2 weeks ago, at the Westin. Visited the Patton museum and did the tram while I was there.
Here in the College Station area, gas got as high as $2.97 but now it has dropped to as low as $2.28.
Will we ever see it drop below $2.00?
Haven't dropped jack up here in Fairbanks. Still near $2.80. I'm starting to get PO'd.
This can't be. As we all know, pursuant to the Big Oil/Halliburton/Cheney/evil neo-con conspiracy, gasoline prices can only go up.
Yep, watching the MSM, one would think it was still $3.00 a gallon.
I've read it's under $2 in the KC metro area.
Am I supposed to be dancing in the street? There's another dollar per gallon to go before I'll get worked up.
"Will we ever see it drop below $2.00?"
I paid $1.94 for unleaded today at the Sam's Club in the Des Moines, IA area! Looks like most stations there were charging $1.97.
We had $3.49 in Rochester NY. It's only now down to 2.69. You think it'll ever hit 2.50?
It got down to $2.09 here.
Now back up to $2.15.
If it goes back up, there isn't a good reason for it except price gouging.
Going through central Illinois the other day I paid $2.17/gallon.
Still about $2.40 in the Chicago area.
I can get gas for $1.96 20 miles west of here in central KS.
