"These low gas prices should stick around for a while until oil prices change course".

The state was averaging $2.24 per gallon a year ago at this time. Drivers in Charleston-North Charleston pay the most at an average price of $2 a gallon.

The average price for gasoline in Tennessee declined for the 20th consecutive day on Sunday, for a total discount of 6 cents.

AAA Michigan surveys daily fuel prices at 2,800 gas stations across the state. Prices across North Dakota were a few cents cheaper than a month ago.

What's Pushing the Price Plunge?

I would say much of the decline in oil prices is reflected at the pump. "Markets moved lower after another round of supply data showing high USA and global refinery production".

Gas prices are down again in Rhode Island, dropping by one penny since last week.

Crude oil hit 8-month lows last week.

Until June, the national average price this year has trended higher than last year's, with the 2017 price tag staying between $2.25 and $2.50. That's about 29 cents less than at the same point a year ago.

The national average is flirting with 2017 lows, falling at a rate of 1-cent per day. Devils Lake to the west had prices lingering around $2.24.

Two stations in Miami-Dade were at $2.12 - Sunshine Gas at Northwest 183rd Street and Douglas Road; and Weststar along the Palmetto Expressway at Douglas Road. Once that happens, the national average would be the lowest since December 2016. "Oil prices would climb if either of them develop into a major storm and threaten refineries along the Gulf Coast", Jenkins said.

AAA found self-serve, regular selling for as low as $2.11 and as high as $2.46 per gallon.

Nearly every state is seeing averages that are less than a year ago, thanks to "an unexpected buildup of crude oil last week combined with ongoing high gasoline production runs, an increase in gasoline stocks and a drop in gasoline demand", AAA said in a news release last week.
