Staff Report | March 04,2013
The price at the pump in Vermont fell 1.7 cents a gallon in the last week, averaging $3.83 a gallon, according to the latest GasBuddy.com survey of 626 gas outlets in the state.
The national average fell 2.8 cents a gallon to $3.70 gallon.
Gas prices in Vermont over the last week were 1.7 cents a gallon higher than the same day a year ago and are 10.8
cents a gallon higher than a month ago.
The national average increased 21.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 0.7 cents a gallon lower than a year ago.
GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan said the current national average prices are now under year ago levels.
“And perhaps the best news is that the national average will likely continue to decline in most areas east of the Rockies in the week ahead as wholesale gasoline prices have given up ground,” DeHaan said.
