Gas prices poised to drop more this week

Gas Prices Down Again at the Pump in Columbia

Still, almost two months after the Category 4 hurricane made landfall in Texas and triggered widespread cost spikes, prices remain well above normal for late October.

The national average has fallen 1.6 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.45 a gallon, according to GasBuddy.

Those were the days - or years, to be precise - when gas prices routinely were above $3.00 a gallon. The price for a gallon of regular declined about 5 cents in the area, from $2.409 per gallon last week to $2.361 on Monday. That's 13 cents below the national average of $2.45 and 10 cents below the Florida average. "Drivers continue to pay in excess of 20 cents more for a gallon of gasoline than they did in 2016, which may prove challenging for those looking to put away some extra cash for the holidays".

Gas prices average even less in Cleveland, Tenn., where the average price of regular gas fell to below $2.05 per gallon on Sunday - the second lowest metro area in the country for regular gas behind only Monroe, La., GasBuddy.com said. Despite the recent downward trend, the state average remains 18 cents higher than pre-Hurricane Harvey levels.

Flu shot program to launch Monday
Shahab said the province follows what happens in the southern hemisphere when forecasting the flu season. Every year, there are between five and 10 flu-related deaths in Saskatchewan.

Gas prices in Lancaster County have been extremely volatile over the past decade. Florida gas prices dropped another 5 cents during the past week. Wholesale prices in the Great Lakes are 20 cents higher than along the Gulf Coast, where they are lowest, DeHaan said.

“According to the Energy Information Administration, domestic crude oil exports have increased to 1.8 million barrels per day, ” Conde said. The national average has remained under $3 per gallon for almost three years.

“Barring significant changes to the current climate, AAA projects that fuel prices will continue to fall in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, ” Conde said.

Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, believes the national average might continue to decline for the next few weeks.
