Average price of U.S. gas remains steady at $2.59 a gallon

The average price for diesel nationwide is $3.00 per gallon. Gas prices has gone up 22.1 cents since previous year and is down 4.6 cents since last month. The lowest was in El Paso, Texas, at $2.19 a gallon.

As more seasonal maintenance begins at USA refineries over the next few weeks, utilization rates will decline and gasoline production will slip as well.

Gas prices after are slowly falling across our state.

States with the lowest average prices last week included:SC ($2.24); MS and Alabama ($2.25); Missouri ($2.26); Arkansas ($2.27); Texas ($2.28); Tennessee ($2.29); Kentucky, Louisiana, and Oklahoma ($2.31).

Although gas prices are not as they were months before, oil prices are volatile, according to Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. The app and website have the most accurate and real-time fuel prices at over 140,000 unique stations in the United States, Canada, and Australia and is the most comprehensive money-saving companion while on the road. Today, those prices have pushed over the $3 mark and are expected to push nearer to $4 as the summer driving season approaches.

US retail gasoline prices slipped last week to a national average of $2.52 a gallon, down a penny from the prior week.

Shelby County has the lowest gas prices this week by a 1-cent margin.

"Thus far, we have seen a market that's lacked solid upward movement when it usually sees exactly that,"said DeHaan in a news release". That compares to $2.30 one year ago.
